BWIL6150: Experience in Industry

This unit is designed to consolidate students' knowledge and skills in business through participating in a self-sourced work experience opportunity. To support the work experience and maximise the learning outcomes, students undertake a series of compulsory academic workshops and assessments designed to develop employability skills. Students are expected to engage with a variety of workplace situations through their work experience to apply business skills and theories from classroom learning. This engagement provides firsthand experience in how business skills and theories can assist in addressing challenges in a business context. Practical applications may include recognising business challenges and opportunities, identifying appropriate strategic responses, and developing suitable management practices and processes. Throughout the unit students are encouraged to improve their reflective practice to help ascertain the contributions they can make to an organisation and determine optimal career paths. Further information and application process is outlined at
