Masters in Business courses – Business in Practice?
If you choose the Business in Practice route for your final assessment, rather than the traditional dissertation route, you will work in teams on a two-week business simulation, setting up and running your own virtual company and competing against other teams. Academic lectures, skills training and other activities will help you develop practical business skills that you can put into practice in the simulation. The Business in Practice route also offers you the opportunity to do a summer internship, which you will need to find yourself but with guidance and support from CareersPlus.
