GUIDANCE FOR Students IN THE COMPLETION OF TASKS

1.  Research-informed Literature

Your work must embed and be informed and supported by relevant and credible scholarly material that is accessible in the learned journals listed on the module schedule.  You should refer to at least ten such sources.  Additionally, you should refer to text books, current news items and benchmark your organization against other organizations to ensure your assignment is current and up-to-date.  High-level referencing skills using the Harvard Method must be demonstrated throughout your work and all sources listed alphabetically within your bibliography.

2.  Knowledge and Understanding of Subject

Your work must demonstrate the growing extent of your knowledge and understanding of concepts and underlying principles associated with the subject area.  This means that within your work, you should provide evidence of your growing mastery in the critical awareness of current challenges, new insights and the constant need for innovation within the field.  Furthermore, a critical awareness of the ambiguities and limitations of knowledge and even understanding should be considered and examples of such, illustrated within your work.

3.  Analysis

To be considered masters worthy, your work must contain evidence of analysis, evaluation, and synthesis.  This means not just describing “What!” but also justifying: Why? How? When? Who? Where? And at what cost!  At all times, you must justify your arguments and judgments.  Evidence that you have reflected upon the ideas of others on matters occurring in the real world of business is crucial to you providing a reasoned and informed debate within your work.  Your choice of methodologies to gather data and information must be rigorously defended.  Furthermore, you should provide evidence that you can make sound judgments and convincing arguments in the absence of complete data, since, within the real world of work, we rarely have access to, or know all the information!  Persuasive conclusions are especially necessary and must be derived from the content of your work – there should be no new information presented in your conclusion.  Your work should aspire to resemble work which is of journal publishable quality.

4.  Practical Application and Deployment

It is essential that you rationalize how you decided upon certain methods, materials, tools, and techniques to inform and complete your work.  You must demonstrate what informed your decision(s) to apply certain concepts that enabled you to formulate innovative and creative solutions to the challenges presented to you or that you identified for yourself.  Plausible, costed and justifiable recommendations are demanded, and where these are absent, your work is undermined.  Your work should provide evidence that you are growing in mastery in developing cutting-edge processes and techniques within the subject area.

5.  Skills for Professional Practice

Your work must provide evidence of your attributes in the application of professional practice.  This includes demonstrating that you are highly capable of individual and collaborative working.  Regarding the presentation of your work, you must demonstrate your ability to select and deploy the appropriate media that is “fit for purpose. Additionally, you must exhibit your ability to: communicate with an exceptionally high level of professionalism; work professionally, autonomously and within a team; develop leadership skills; and produce/present work that is coherent, cogent and specifically addresses the challenges set for you or you have set yourself. Importantly, your work should be easily understood by specialists and non-specialists in the field.
