Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

This paper, usually taken after four years of study in the BMS, facilitates immersion experience in a business, industry or other organisation. Students spend 4-13 weeks immersed full time during normal business working hours in a host organisation they find for themselves. Host organisations may be in New Zealand or overseas. Many students taking this course are paid (wages) for their time in their host organisation, but this is not mandatory, and is up to each student to negotiate with prospective host organisations about wages or other form of payment that might be part of the arrangements they make.

Students involved in the Industry Experience paper are expected to undertake the projects and work assigned by their host organisation supervisor during business hours and do the academic components of this course outside business hours. The learning hours for the academic components of the course (research topics, weekly contributions, report, self-evaluation) are in addition to the immersion hours spent with the host organisation.

The three major assessments are:
1) Students are required to participate each week during the course in an electronic discussion with other students in the class, and
2) Students are required to complete a research report based on their area of study and their host organisation, and
3) Students are required to complete a two-stage reflective piece on their experience and achievements in the host organisation.
