The Bachelor of Business Management is designed to position graduates for success as professional business managers in any industry. Every organisation in every industry requires management professionals, with skills to oversee the performance of teams, optimise operations and maximise a company’s potential for profit.

The Bachelor of Business Management has been designed to provide a foundation in discipline and enterprise areas relevant to business graduates and expected by employers of business management graduates. International business, ethics, sustainability, innovation, and strategy permeate the course, representing areas of knowledge where graduates will have substantial awareness and advanced skills. Students will have the ability to engage with projects where there is an opportunity to experience and reflect on failures and successes. Through this, they develop resilience and self-reliance as well as relevant knowledge and skills.

The Bachelor of Business Management offers students the opportunity to engage with a range of electives so they can pursue areas of interest. The electives are in discipline areas which are interrelated and enable graduates to contribute to the contemporary business context meaningfully.

Work integrated learning (WIL301) is a professional placement and capstone subject in the third year of the bachelor course. The purpose of the WIL is to provide an important opportunity for students to apply the theory and practice learned and continue to improve and apply their knowledge and skills in a real workplace professional setting. Students combine this with a workplace-based project with a focus on problem identification and research.

The work integrated learning unit, is a crucial part of a student’s program of study at IGI.
The single WIL unit consists of a minimum of 150 hours of placement, with the student completing a range of assessments throughout the unit of study.

Assessment methods

Assessment is an information gathering process with the aim of improving, evaluating, and understanding students’ learning to determine how well performance matches the expectations and learning outcomes of the unit.

Assessment tasks that make up a component of the total score for a unit
have clear marking criteria highlighting the learning objectives, outcomes and
expectations to achieve a particular grade. Specified unit learning outcomes are assessed through a combination of:
• individual and group tasks; and
• formative and summative tasks.

Formative assessment is the gathering of data on student learning during an instructional or classroom encounter. It helps to identify concepts or skills that students are not learning well, and to take steps to improve student learning while the course is still in progress. Examples include:
• presentations.
• participation in group assignments or in class learning activities.
• simulations.

Summative assessment is the gathering of data on student learning at the conclusion of a subject, as a basis for judging student knowledge and skills.
Examples include:
• case studies.
• literature reviews.
• reports or essay writing.
• quizzes.
• reflective journals (when completed at the end of a unit)
• assignments (when completed at the end of a unit)
