Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content
This paper is a part of Stage 3 in the MPAcct programme. The rationale for this paper is that students will apply their knowledge and learning in a real life situation. This paper will give students the opportunity to gain confidence in a professional environment. Students will be engaged in more insightful learning through the application of critical thinking and problem solving skills in this research project paper. This paper offers an alternative to students who are unable to find an accounting internship position but is able to find instead a research project that would allow them to still demonstrate their learning and knowledge in a real-life situation.
