BUSN13004 - Professional Practice and Experience

General Information

Unit Synopsis

Employers are seeking work-ready graduates who can apply their university-developed knowledge, skills and attributes in diverse work environments and new contexts. This unit will provide you with the opportunity to consolidate knowledge of your chosen profession/discipline and demonstrate graduate attributes through an authentic learning experience of your choice: internship, global experience or project. The internship creates an opportunity for you to gain practical work experience. You will apply discipline knowledge and critical thinking skills to propose creative, ethical and innovative solutions within the workplace. The global experience creates an opportunity for you to engage in a 2-6 week international program. You will apply cross-cultural knowledge and critical thinking skills to propose creative, ethical and innovative solutions in response to global challenges. The project option creates an opportunity for you to complete a scaffolded investigation (supervised project) at an advanced level. You will apply discipline knowledge and critical thinking skills to propose creative, ethical and innovative solutions to a workplace or community issue related to your discipline area. We encourage you to enrol early to receive further information about each experience and begin the selection process. The internship and global experience options are subject to availability and you are required to enrol three months prior to the start of Term to participate in the internship option. The global experience is subject to availability and is available in Term 3; you are required to enrol three months prior to the start of Term 3 to participate in the global experience option.
