It will enable them to gain experience in applying academic knowledge and generic skills and extend their abilities in information gathering, analysis, project management, negotiation and communication. Where the project is undertaken as a group, it will enhance teamwork skills. It will further help students refine their skills, build their confidence and increase their awareness of the requirements for successful professional business practice.  In this unit, students identify a specific business problem or issue and devise a project to address the issue.  The project will usually entail the collection and analysis of information and secondary data to achieve a specific project outcome.
