Pre-requisite Courses and Assumed Knowledge and Capabilities

Required Prior Study:
This is a capstone course in the Bachelor of Business and Bachelor of Business Professional Practice programs and should be completed in year three of the program.


Course Description

This capstone course integrates the Bachelor of Business student learning journey for several interrelated purposes: reflecting and documenting on the graduate attributes and program learning outcomes; employability and career skills and professional competencies and lifelong learning. In this course you use an ePortfolio to reflect and provide evidence of learning to demonstrate personal accomplishments for personal development, career planning and progression after graduation. You will call on, and further develop, your industry and business networks, and be exposed to mentoring and advice from key industry partners (including career advisors, capability development professionals and proponents of lifelong learning).

This is a blended Work Integrated (WIL) course, with industry bringing challenges (e.g. how do you articulate your personal journey through the Bachelor of Business in terms that employers, potential business partners, future Honours supervisors (etc) can engage with?), providing feedback and mentoring, and overseeing simulated WIL tasks (such as applying for a job or presenting a start-up/business plan). These tasks will be tailored to your individual journey through your Bachelor of Business studies, with a view to identifying what’s next (and beyond).  This will be a culmination of the ePortfolio that you began in the first year of the Bachelor of Business program.
