Credit points: 3
Year: 2014
Student Contribution Band: Band 3
Administered by: School of Business (pre 2015)

Only available to students undertaking the BBus (Hospitality Mgt).

This subject has a strong emphasis on identification and fulfilment of personal learning objectives as it gives students an opportunity to evaluate and apply management skills and competencies achieved on the Bachelor of Business degree in an industrial setting. The practicum will also provide students with invaluable material upon which they can draw, synthesise and apply to other subjects of the hospitality management major. This subject also provides an opportunity for students to begin identifying suitable areas of study should they decide to enrol on an honours year. Students are assessed on the basis of employer appraisal reports, minimum attendance and a written report. Students are also required to keep a diary intended to provide a basis of observations and notes of industrial practice.
