SDPM73-100: Professional Portfolio


This subject is strongly experientially oriented and encourages students to develop their professional skills in a real world environment. The subject ensures that students combine self-analysis and reflective learning skills with business and professional methodologies, so as to expand analytic and strategic thinking capabilities. It provides practical experience for students to develop their skills in a profession relevant to their Masters specialisation. All students are required to complete a 2,000 word scoping document, and undertake either a work placement in Australia for 210 hours (which includes an employer's report and a reflective journal) or alternative on-campus project (PM-BOT) or research-related fieldwork (which includes evidence collection, critical reflection and implications for industry), plus a final professional portfolio collection of documents highlighting their practical and theoretical experiences in their profession of choice.
