This is a third-year Core Unit in the Bachelor of Business, all streams.
Students undertaking this unit may find their own industry based project, which must be approved by the Industry Project Coordinator, prior to commencement. Students also have the option of an industry based project secured by MIT at an additional nominal fee.
BB330 Industry Based Capstone Project aims to provide the students with an opportunity to undertake project work for 150 hours in one trimester, and provide students with realistic industry knowledge, skills and experience so as to be ‘workready’. This unit will further equip students with the knowledge, abilities and skills of fundamentals of project management body of knowledge, and to bring together educational learning to that of work organisation new learning opportunities in the workplace. Students work with a client to execute work-based projects relevant to their major disciplinary arena for example: Accounting, Management, Marketing or Digital Marketing, and work with a supervisor who has defined the task deliverables of the project to be undertaken.
Prior to undertaking an industry based project, formal workshops are scheduled and attendance at the workshops is compulsory for students enrolled in BB330 Industry Based Capstone Project. Attendance at the workshops is a prerequisite for securing a project and passing the unit.
The workshops, conducted are designed to assist the student to learn to:
