    The course aims to further enhance students’ ability to fully engage with business and management theories and apply them in a real-world context. By working independently on an applied business project that addresses a specific managerial problem or explores a business opportunity, students will be able to demonstrate their ability to integrate the knowledge and skills acquired in the post-graduate programme and past learning experience. Students will have the opportunity to put their creative and innovative skills into use during the investigation of business and management issues.

    The course covers the following topics:

    • Identifying an idea for a business project: how to get started?
    • Business analysis tools and practice
    • Evidence collection and investigation plan
    • Action plan, ethical issues and business report
