Approach to learning and assessment

The Bachelor of Business Professional Practice has a variety of learning and teaching approaches. The approaches used in each course will be appropriate to the learning outcomes and core capabilities they are designed to develop. The assessment you must complete is designed to provide you with opportunities to demonstrate the extent to which you have developed your capabilities and achieved specific learning outcomes in a given area. Methods of assessment will also vary with the learning outcomes and core capabilities of the relevant course.

The Bachelor of Business Professional Practice is predominately a blended learning environment. This includes both classroom teaching and an online learning environment.

In terms of classroom teaching, this may include discussion, guest lecturers, tutorials, class presentations, group discussions, student-led discussions, role-plays, etc. This style of learning is designed to maximise your understanding of the curriculum content and develop appropriate skills. It is designed to provide an environment where you can ask questions and seek feedback as well as contribute to class discussion and apply theory to practice.

The Bachelor of Business Professional Practice incorporates the use of authentic assessment. This is an approach to assessment where you are asked to perform real-world tasks to demonstrate the application of knowledge and skills. Authentic assessment requires you to perform tasks that meet the needs of industry so that you are work-ready.

Problem-based learning: In the Bachelor of Business Professional Practice, you may work in a team or individually to conduct research, solve problems, analyse and respond to case studies, prepare or respond to briefs, write original research or case study reports, or participate in managing a company in a computer-based business simulation. This technique is designed to simulate the experiences you will encounter working in business. 

Experiential learning and support: In the Bachelor of Business Professional Practice, you will most likely choose to spend periods of time learning through reflection on completing tasks in a relevant work-related context. To navigate through any lengthy periods of internship a mentor will be assigned to you as personal supervisor to anything academic or professional. 

Assignments and projects: These may be either research or problem based, and may be undertaken in teams or individually. They will provide you with experience at undertaking research and writing effectively to present your findings and recommendations to a range of audiences. Assignments and projects are also designed to develop your abilities in communications, research and reasoning, and provide a way to receive feedback on your skills development. By utilising this feedback to improve your skills and further develop your capabilities in relevant areas you will develop as a life-long learner. 

For more information on assessment, refer to the RMIT Assessment and Assessment Flexibility policy.

Work integrated learning

The Bachelor of Business Professional Practice is a program dedicated to the principals of Work Integrated Learning (WIL). In addition to the WIL courses explained below, Professional Practice is intrinsically linked to experiential education in an industry context. As such, you will start with a core introductory level virtual Impact Academy internship, which includes direct industry contacts solving industry challenges as consultants. You will continue through option choices for alternative or deeper direct internship professional experience with chosen partner or sponsors, and conclude in a final flexible fourth year, allowing the additional time to specialise your engagement journey in a manner of your choosing.   

For most of the direct industry engagement courses, you will be required to source, apply and provide for approval your own placement (paid or unpaid). The one exception is Impact Academy where the industry partners are provided.  

The BusWIL team based in Student Lifecycle Services can support via the Undergraduate Business Internship website where you can work through the outlined process and download the required documentation.  

Potential ‘jobs’ are constantly being sourced and posted to RMIT’s online job board careerhub.rmit.edu.au. Once you have found a proposed internship, it is vital that you send your proposed job description to bus.wil@rmit.edu.au.  

A WIL agreement document for your employer to complete and sign will be required. As such, this offer can last up to three years and can be used for multiple internships during that time. However, each internship does require the start and finish dates of each to be recorded alongside the approved job description. This is the only legal way you can undertake an internship as part of your study program, and it covers your insurance during the dates specified.

RMIT University is committed to providing all students with an education that strongly links formal learning with professional or vocational practice. As a student enrolled in this RMIT University program you will: 

  • undertake and be assessed on structured activities that allow you to learn, apply and demonstrate your professional or vocational practice; 
  • interact with industry and community when undertaking these activities; 
  • complete these activities in real work contexts or situations; and 
  • be provided with distinctive sources of feedback to assist your learning. 

Any or all of these aspects of a WIL experience may be in a simulated workplace environment.

In the WIL courses throughout the program, you will engage in activities that integrate theoretical learning with practical application in professional contexts that will engage you in meaningful and consequential learning activities.  These courses involve you in interacting with organisations (industry, government and community) through discipline-relevant projects and work placements. Many courses in the program use guest lecturers from industry, government or the community and activities relating to industry as part of the learning experience.   

Work integrated learning courses are included throughout the curriculum and clearly indicated as an integrated component of course choice. The WIL designated courses in the Bachelor of Business Professional Practice are: 

  • BUSM2577 Integrated Perspectives on Business Problems (12 credit points)
  • BUSM2582 Business Graduate Folio (12 credit points)
