What this paper is about

Edit What this paper is about Content
Internships are about the application of skills learned at university to problems inside organisations to provide students with real world experience, to refine those skills through application and to gain connections with potential future employers. MNMGT519 represents a second work-integrated learning (WIL) experience within the BMS(hons) degree and as such seeks to create a different, team-driven internship experience from the first individual WIL experience earlier. Interdisciplinary projects require multiple perspectives to achieve successful outcomes and are commonly used in businesses as well as consulting. Real interdisciplinary projects from existing businesses will form the basis for each team to work on individual projects for a company. Those projects have been obtained in advance so students do not need to find their own projects. But, in order to maximise the benefit of the team-based interdisciplinary approach we will have workshops to develop necessary skills in the first four weeks as each team works through an initial mini-project. From week four, teams will be introduced to their project and the client organisation. Supervision of these projects will jointly be provided by the client, faculty and any expert help as required.

This paper is run in a FLEXI mode. This means that the workshops can be accessed online - though benefit will be maximised by being at least synchronously engaged in the workshops. From week four, there are no regularly scheduled events at the university as the work is focused on the projects. All teams are expected to meet at least every two weeks with their faculty supervisor.
