Content
This management case study comprises a suitable research task equivalent to one Master of Business Administration unit, undertaken specifically for this purpose under the guidance of an assigned supervisor. The research normally follows a proposal prepared in collaboration with the supervisor and approved by the Director of Postgraduate Programs. It is then documented in a research report, not exceeding 10,000 words.
Outcomes
Students are able to (1) develop and refine your research skills in a way which will assist you to undertake business related research projects; (2) gain deeper practical insights into a specific business-related issue or organisational problem; and (3) gain confidence in the analysis of issues and the presentation of recommendations.
Assessment
Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) participation--individual; (2) case study powerpoint and word file (or notes)--individual; and (3) final case study powerpoint--group. Further information is available in the unit outline.

Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.
