Note:

Special Note:

This unit can only be taken in your final coursework semester.

Introduction

This unit provides students with an opportunity to make practical use of knowledge they have acquired from their completed Masters units, in combination with gaining new skills in undertaking research. This unit will allow students to work in small teams to undertake practical research tasks to investigate an organisational context from multiple perspectives: knowledge management; e-logistics, and network security, with the aim of identifying opportunities for improvement. Students will then research appropriate solutions and present the organisation with a justified recommendation to how to take advantage of these available opportunities.
