In BAA706 Workplace Project, students undertake a period of project-oriented workplace research in the area of administration/management arising out of, and in the course of, their employment. The subject enables students to critically reflect on the skills, capabilities and knowledge that they have acquired in previous years of their study, and to reflect on and articulate the links between those skills, capabilities and knowledge in the context of a workplace-centred project. The Corporate Internship Program (available in this degree via BAA709 Corporate Internship) is a Work Integrated Learning (WIL) program where students undertake placements within organisations. Internships provide students the opportunity to directly apply theoretical learning in a practical, and real-world, environment.
