EXEC71-106: Major Application Project


In this capstone subject, you will examine a large-scale, complex issue that requires considerable independent study and broad, integrated application of what you have learned in the Executive MBA program to date. Your research project can address an organisational problem or opportunity encountered professionally or a conceptual issue encountered academically. In consultation with the subject coordinator and a chosen academic mentor, you are expected to identify and clearly define the ‘problem’; integrate and apply relevant theory; collect and analyse appropriate data; and formulate reasonable, evidence-based conclusions. The expected deliverables are a professional written and formatted report detailing all aspects of the project and an executive presentation of key elements.
