20 Credits SPRING

Aims/Description: This unit provides students with an opportunity to consolidate and further extend their knowledge on a specific topic, or a combination of topics, within the domain of international business. Students are required to engage in an in-depth personal investigative study of a topic of their choice. Students are, under the guidance of a tutor, responsible for their own independent learning. This approach is intended to stimulate intellectual creativity, autonomous and reflexive learning capabilities, as well as research and writing skills.
