Taken towards the end of a study programme, and optionally over 2 study periods, Industry Research Project enables students to complete a substantial independently directed research project and present a well documented business report / research paper in a form suitable for presentation to a business board or industry panel demonstrating deep insights into an issue or problem previously identified about a business or industry. Students are strongly encourage to use this unit as an opportunity to undertake real world business related study and investigation with application and relevance to their own workplace or intended work area. Under the supervision of a staff member, students will identify and justify a business / industry related problem or area / issue worthy of investigation then gather and analyse information culminating in a final report on the business / industry problem or issue about which they have undertaken this research project.
