Student Contribution Band: Band 3
Administered by: School of Business

The business plan is one of two alternative capstone subjects for the MBA which brings together the theoretical material covered in the course and applies it to practice based learning in the form of a business plan. Small teams of students devise, develop, deliver and document an integrated plan for a real or simulated business.

It will involve documented project management processes for the plan team to achieve project goals, a group pitch, and a plan document.
