Job Smart Edge BUSS6102

BUSS6102 is an intensive unit exclusively available to students participating in Job Smart Edge during the October intensive in Semester 2 2020 (21 September to 01 November).

Building on the learning from the extra-curricular Job Smart Edge program, students who wish to complete Job Smart Edge as part of their degree will be required to enrol in BUSS6102, a 6 credit point elective unit of study running in the October intensive session, and will be liable for unit of study fees.  

In BUSS6102, students will further explore and build upon their work in the Job Smart Edge Program. Students will take their practical work completed in Job Smart Edge and complement it with structured activities and assessments that will encourage students to apply theoretical knowledge and critical analysis as they produce real-world style reports. Additionally, for the duration of the unit, students will reflect on how they have developed as an individual and as part of a team, as a means of developing a professional identity that highlights their distinctive self.

Enrolment into this unit is via departmental permission. Contact business.wil@sydney.edu.au

Business Practicum

The WIL HUB’s Business Practicum (BUSS1321/BUSS6104) offers students an opportunity to interact with a company, SME, NFP or government organisation. Student ‘consultancies’ are created in class through which members work collaboratively ‘live’ on a project during the semester.

The project usually addresses a problem or issue arising within the organisation that requires analysis of the issues and development of a solution. The issue may be internal, requiring a narrower scope or a response to the changing commercial environment due to technology, environmental issues or other ‘wicked problems’.

Participants research the issues and determine its scope and key deliverables in consultation with the sponsor. This process enables students to apply theoretical knowledge learned in class along with critically analysing information and data accessed during research, to provide possible solutions to the problems and challenges identified.

At the end of the semester, students present their findings to the sponsor and provide a written summary (presentation document). Additionally, for the duration of the project, students are expected to reflect on how they have developed as an individual and as part of a team, as a means of developing a professional identity that highlights their distinctive self.

For further information on Business Practicums, please email Mr Geoffrey Harrison.

Please note, all WIL Hub units of study will be delivered fully online until further notice. This includes full online student participation for any work-place components of the course. Please consider this change to program delivery prior to enrolling and committing to the program.
