At the end of the second year students may choose to take part in a final project as one of their elective options, which will provide students an opportunity to put their theoretical learning into practice. They also have the opportunity to take part in a Global Experience Week, where they will go to another country for a week and visit different businesses operating in that part of the world. All students will take part in The Capstone Business Game, which takes place at the end of the program and which involves students coming to campus for a week of lectures, as well as working in groups in a high-tech business simulation game experience that allows students the chance to apply their new skills and knowledge in a hands-on scenario.
