Industry Self-Sourced Placement - BUSS2200

Year - 2020

This unit is designed to further consolidate students' knowledge and skills in business while conducting an industry placement that has been self-sourced. The unit is structured around assessed tasks which are designed to allow students to demonstrate their ability to apply and synthesise business concepts in a practical business setting. During the self-sourced placement, students may be involved in a variety of different industry and client-based projects, which afford the opportunity to apply business skills and theories from prior learning. This provides firsthand experience of how these skills and theories support the solving of business problems in a practical business context, identifying opportunities, developing strategies and designing processes, procedures and management practices in order to enable an organisation to fully realise its competitive potential.
