LB5218 - Business Plan: Application of Strategy

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

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. The business plan must be logically developed to provide achievable outcomes for the organisation. It will involve documented project management processes for the plan team to achieve project goals, a group pitch, and a plan document.

Learning Outcomes

  • Demonstrate creativity and initiative in the application of discipline-specific learning outcomes to the world of work;
  • Demonstrate abilities to work as part of a team and manage team inputs and processes to achieve a coordinated outcome;
