MIBS6006: International Business Project B

This unit is completed at the end of the Master of International Business program. It enables students to apply the knowledge, theories and skills which they have developed throughout the program. Students engage in a mini-consulting project where they work on a brief provided by participating companies and designed in consultation with academic staff. The project requires students to define, analyse and propose solutions to actual problems related to the relevant international dimensions of the participating company's operations. Successful completion of the project requires demonstration of the analytical, communication, cross-cultural, teamwork and ethical skills required to perform at a professional level in a global business context.
