ACCT495-15C (NET) - Industry Experience 4 (2015)
A period of four to thirteen weeks internship is spent in a host organisation with relevance to the student's major, located in New Zealand or overseas. Students find their own host organisation, which is then approved by the departmental co-ordinator. In addition to the time spent in the host organisation, Weekly small group electronic discussions about work experiences, a self-evaluation of performance, and a report reflecting on the internship and the completion of the agreed self-directed research topics form the three academic assessment components.
This paper, usually taken after three years of study in the BMS, facilitates practical experience in an industry placement. Students are based in a host organisation they find for 4 - 13 weeks, and host organisations may be in New Zealand or overseas. Students are required to participate weekly in an electronic discussion with other students in the class, and complete a reflective report at the end of the employment period on a set of self-selected research topics.
