The project is carried out under the guidance of a staff member selected by the candidate and the School of Accounting, Economics and Finance. The student will undertake an appropriate insurance or finance related project as agreed with their employer (or if this is not possible, as approved by the Course Team Chair) and approved by University supervisor, a member of the academic staff. However, topics are not restricted apart from general guidelines. Preferred topics include studies related to practical insurance and finance problems occurring at the candidate's place of work; more theoretical studies are also acceptable.
Each student will be required to produce and submit a formal project proposal and work plan related to the proposed project. Students will be required to produce an interim report for assessment at the midpoint of the study to raise issues and address changes to the strategic direction of the practicum. Students will produce a final report for assessment.
