MBA students benefit from industry experience

8 Apr 2014

Master of Business Administration students are gaining practical experience through work integrated learning projects.

The "Applied Industry Practice" course, a core component of the MBA program, consists of a career planning module and a company project.

The career planning module provides students with a clear understanding of the current and anticipated trends in the global employment market and the skills, attitudes and techniques needed for a successful career.

For the project, students receive a detailed brief and are required to work on the project as "consultants", reporting and presenting to the company's management team at the end of semester.
 
At the start of semester the "client" presents the company and project to the class, indicating their expectations, and answering questions.

Students then have the opportunity to pitch their ideas and get feedback before presenting their final report to a panel at the end of semester.

Terry Boulter, Director, MBA programs, said: "The Applied Industry Practice component of the MBA is extremely valuable to our students.

"It provides them with a practical hands-on learning experience and a direct link to the senior members of our partnering organisations including Telstra, Prudential Investment Company of Australia (PICA) and Siemens.
 
"Many students have found work with these companies as a result of relationships developed throughout the semester."


 
Monica Tarus and Michelle Cummins, PICA Group.

Michelle Cummins, General Manager, PICA Group, has hired a number of RMIT graduates through her close affiliation with the Graduate School of Business and Law (GSBL).

"I studied at RMIT myself so I already had a strong connection to the University," Ms Cummins said.

"Over the years this association has continued and PICA has become closely involved with the Applied Industry Practice course.

"As a result, we have employed six RMIT graduates - three in HR and three in operations.
 
"My experience with MBA students and alumni has always been positive so if we are ever looking for new staff in our accounts, HR, operations or strategic management areas I will approach my contacts at the GSBL."

Many types of ram beds usually are prteoomd for the usage of athletes. Since athletes suffer from body injuries regularly, this bedding can accelerate their healing. In truth, many memory foam mattresses get even increased the performance degree of athletes. Therefore, we possess air pressure that is distributed throughout the mattress. This is the reason why you don't feel as much pressure while lying down compared a powerful innerspring bed mattress. It in addition explains how orthopedic can contour with the shape of the body.

It also has the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land andtime to replant and develop new root systems.Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140 Million with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With anticipated growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during its initial 9-year cycle.Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153 Million in revenues. As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree continues to grow around the world EGTY believes additional multi-million dollar agreements will be forthcoming.

Looking at my gas/electricity bill last month reminded me of exlacty this idea and I even looked (very briefly) at share prices for utility companies. I have to applaud you for having the foresight to do this as a couple of things occurred to me. 1st one was I should have done this much much sooner as the prices are a bit more than they were 10 years ago, and the 2nd was the P/E ratio of around 14 seemed a bit high to be good value for me. That's a lot of money to tie up for now, so I'll stick to paying off more debt for the moment.I do think banking shares are cheap at the moment though.
