Course Description

International Management Project B is the continuation of International Management Project A, and involves a cross-national team of MBA(IM) students undertaking a research project in international management.

Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

In this course students learn to plan and conduct a major project, with members from different countries.

The capacity to work together to an agreed goal whilst separated by distance and nationalities is developed.

The capability to do original research, with the associated skills and capabilities development, is practised.

1) To continue IMPA research by implementing empirical work with appropriate analysis and conclusions.

2) To document the research findings in the form of a paper of publishable quality.

3) To encourage students to disseminate the research findings as an article in a recognised journal or as a paper at a conference or seminar.

The academic objective is to require students to prepare a paper of high quality, the longer-term professional objective is to encourage and enable students to continue to pursue learning on an individual and collaborative basis throughout their professional careers.
