The project is worth 50% of the final grade and supports you in developing your personal research skills. For e-Business Management the project should normally be related to management or technology-related issues in companies involved in e-Business and e-Commerce.
Work on your project runs concurrently with your module work. In addition to face-to-face meetings, supervisors may expect you to use online collaborative tools to manage and monitor your progress.
You are expected to devote an appropriate portion of your time and intellectual effort to the project during the course i.e. approximately 900 hours or 6 months study.
Examples of some projects are:
The taught component of the course is a mixture of traditional lectured material, syndicate/group work, large scale delivery, practical work, online learning and forum activities. Module leaders are experts in their fields and are supported by external speakers working in organisations at the forefront of their fields.
Industrial visits are available to all students and the course is assessed through assignments.
Each module will usually last one week.
Graduates can expect to be employed in information technology and software related companies, enterprises with existing or developing online e-business initiatives, particularly those in the engineering and/or manufacturing sector.
Successful alumni often go into IT and e-business consultancy roles, both self-employed and in large consultancy groups.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
No work experience is required.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS we offer you the chance to receive up to £10,000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
