Course Overview

This course uses student led learning where the lecturer will act as a guide and students will take the lead developing research projects. Below, there is a range of contemporary topics offered in the course from which students will need to choose, develop the topic and present their findings to the rest of the cohort. For example, lecture session could be used for presentations and tutorial session could be used to coach the students in their research. This course is complementary to Contemporary Issues in International Business II and it may be the case that a topic used in this course is expanded subsequently.
