Description This module comprises a placement year taken after the first two years of study. Through the module, students will obtain practical experience of employment in industry related to their area of study. Students will be encouraged to put into practice the theoretical knowledge and skills developed during the first two years of their academic programme; explore challenges that they, their organisation, or the industry faces; and critically reflect on their experiences. The year in industry will provide students with real-life experiences that can be used to underpin theoretical learning on return to their final year.
Learning Outcomes By the end of the module, students should be able to:
  • Apply knowledge and skills of business management to problem solve, communicate and think critically within a work environment.
  • Understand and analyse organisational goals and pro-actively contribute to those specific goals as an individual and as part of a team during an industrial placement.
  • Apply analytical skills relating to the contribution of the organisation, its practices and processes, to society.
  • Critically reflect on the application of theoretical knowledge and skills of business management to a work environment.
