Project work will develop students' ability to work both in a team context and also independently; IT and information handling skills will be developed and reports are expected to be word processed; students will be expected to manager their own time in order to meet submission deadlines.

Reading Lists

The nature of this module is such that there is no set text. Students are expected to use in their work, concepts learned in other modules of their degree scheme. Consequently, they will need to refer back to reading material and notes from previous modules. Students will also be expected to use their own initiative and to undertake extensive research on their chosen industry/firm.
