BSc Project

2022/2023

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

The module will give students the opportunity to apply the business knowledge they have acquired through their BSc course to a problem of their choice, closely related to the core discipline within business economics. The student can choose to explore the issue in close collaboration with one or more organisations, or a purely theoretical project can be developed.

The project is written alone or in groups with other students and a supervisor will be assigned to the project. The supervisor will offer feedback in connection with researching, theoretically and methodically analysing, understanding and reflecting on practice-oriented business issues.

On completion of the module, the student must demonstrate a level of scientific competence that will enable them to enter the labour market in a relevant and qualified manner or to embark on a master's programme.

Learning objectives

Knowledge

The objective is that the student after the module possesses the necessary knowledge on:

  • and can define and reproduce key issues in business economics, theoretically as well as in practice.
  • theoretical and practical advantages and disadvantages of applying different theoretical perspectives and approaches to a key self-selected problem in business economics.
  • and understanding of key methodological approaches, including digital data sources and tools to explore a self-selected business economics problem in theory and practice.

Skills

The objective is that the student after the module possesses the necessary skills in:

  • identifying key scientific perspectives within a self-selected theoretical or practical problem.
  • selecting relevant theories in order to understand and analyse a practical business problem in a critical and reflective way.
  • on the basis of scientific analyses of a self-selected business economic problem, formulating understandings and solutions and to argue on an academic basis for the possibilities and limitations underlying the problems.
  • applying digital tools in project management and processing of the chosen problem, where appropriate.

Competences

The objective is that the student after the module possesses the necessary competences in:

  • applying relevant knowledge and skills to generalise, abstract and build understanding of key business issues and using this knowledge to independently undertake ongoing analysis, to adapt and where appropriate, develop new solutions to key issues as complexity increases.
  • being able to organise and carry out projects in which key issues within a self-selected business problem are addressed from the idea phase to the implementation of proposed solutions.
  • being able to reflect on the relationships between chosen learning styles, quality of project work and individual student learning outcomes in relation to a self-selected business problem.
  • undertaking effective problem solving and decision making using relevant qualitative, quantitative, or digital skills.
