This unit provides opportunities for students to apply key conceptual frameworks, analytical tools and knowledge of food and agribusiness into a realistic project. Unique to this Unit is the flexibility for students to either undertake an internship, with an approved organisation such as an agribusiness company, farm, and government agency (subject to place availability) to work on a specific and defined task or project; or conduct an independent study to investigate a current issue or explore business opportunities in a select industry. Topics such as effective literature review, proposal writing, analytical methods, presenting professionally, and networks in agribusiness will be covered. At the end of this Unit, students will present results from their individual project in various flexible formats, including a business analysis, research report, and a policy review. This flexibility will enable students to gain experience that is aligned with their individual professional goals.
