Your assessment for this module takes the form of a project report.
Specific instructions are provided below:
- 1. Project Report (100%)
The Business Project report should be formatted using a professional font. Well-written reports have plenty of white space in page design. Pages should be numbered. There should be a margin of at least one inch at the top bottom and right side margin, with at least one and a half inches on the left margin to allow for spiral binding.
The report length is 5,000 words, maximum. Please state the word count at the end. There will be a mark penalty for exceeding the word limit. This word count excludes the bibliography and appendices. An additional 500 to 800 words are set for your Personal Learning Statement.
An important transferable skill, which is part of the assessment, is the ability to select and process material and to write appropriate English. Please note the following points:
- Any acronyms must be translated in full the first time they are used.
- Any jargon must be explained.
- Use tables or graphs to present numerical data: number them.
- The report should flow in a logical and structured way.
- Main sections should be numbered including sub-sections e.g. 1, 1.1, 1.2, 1.3.
- Use indents for sub-sections.
- Each main section should start with an introduction and end with a brief summary to ensure coherence.
- Appendices, if used, should be coded with either Roman numbering or capital letters e.g. I, II, III, IV or A, B, C.
