BMGT45500 Company Project

Academic Year 2023/2024

This module introduces students from any discipline to the area of business planning in project management through the lens of creating a practical Feasibility analysis /Business Plan for a company aiming to expand its operations in some way. Each session will last between 2 and 3 hours – we will be adopting a hybrid model with some Zoom sessions alongside the classroom ones.

Sessions will introduce different tools and methods which are used in Feasibility Analysis and Business Planning, with in-class workshops and discussions reinforcing the learnings as you apply these to your in-company projects. Outside the classroom you will be expected to add to and build upon the material covered in class, by researching and applying other relevant materials. This is intended to be a highly practical module, but you are expected to read widely outside the base material presented and show evidence of this in your graded submissions and in-class participation.
