RATIONALE FOR THE MODULE
The purpose of the internship and management project module is to enable students to apply knowledge and skills acquired throughout the MSc Management course to an organisational issue or problem. In addition, the module will provide students with experience of selling themselves to employers, gaining employment and acquiring and developing workplace skills, enhancing their future career prospects as a result. 
As part of the process students carry out primary or secondary research within an organisational setting. This will involve the selection of appropriate research methods to solve a “live” management problem. The results will be presented both in the form of an academic internship research proposal and final report.
The module is designed to enhance employability and career prospects and to build confidence through gaining experience in a business environment. It also serves as an integrating mechanism for all course content as well as developing analytical, evaluative and project management skills.
AIMS  OF THE MODULE
The aims of the internship module are:
To further develop research and project management skills;
To pursue an in-depth study within an area of business and management;
To enhance and further develop practical management skills;
To equip students with the necessary competencies to prepare a structured, well-presented report;
To enhance employability and career prospects;
To reflect on their professional development;
To communicate with both an academic and a professional audience.                                                          
LEARNING OUTCOMES              
Successful students will be able to:
Critically evaluate, synthesise and apply multidisciplinary concepts, tools and techniques in resolving real-time management issues.
Demonstrate independent thought in relation to the conduct of research, analysis and development of business opportunities.
Interact within a workplace environment as well as be self-directed and able to act autonomously in diagnosing management problems and planning and implementing projects for their solution.
Utilise and develop key personal and interpersonal skills to negotiate organisational access and demonstrate the ability to work autonomously in the production of a research project.
CONTENT
Workshops
These will introduce students to the module and are designed to allow students the opportunity to discuss both their projects and their internship, and to learn from each other and the academic member of staff facilitating the discussion. They will cover project expectations and requirements
Supervision Interactions
Each student will be allocated an academic supervisor to assist them with their project. They will interact with their supervisor on a regular basis for advice and support. It is the responsibility of the student to initiate contact with their supervisor upon allocation.
Internship / Consultancy Project
Each student is responsible for undertaking a management project. Whilst students are welcome to engage with chosen host organisations and work in collaboration with them as part of their project this is not essential and students can conduct a project based on a chosen organisation or industry with data derived solely from secondary / desk research. For those wishing to engage with a host organisation with a host organisation some advice will be offered during the workshop sessions. Students will be expected to work on an organisation/industry-specific project with guidance from both their academic and industry mentor (where applicable). However, the emphasis during the internship is on self-management by the student of both their time and their project. Students are advised to view this as an opportunity to demonstrate the skills and competencies necessary to secure a role within an organisation/industry that is of interest to them.
TEACHING METHODS
Teaching with take the form of online workshops in semester 2 which will address some of the key employment and internship skills.
Students should also undertake an online research methods element which will prepare them for consideration of the data collection techniques which they may engage with in order to fulfil the requirement of their internship project.
Students will be appointed an academic supervisor with whom they will be required to interact with throughout the end of semester two and into semester three. This person will be responsible for helping the student develop and deliver their Internship Proposal and Final Project.
ASSESSMENT (100% Coursework)
COURSEWORK 1: PROJECT PROPOSAL (20%) 1500 words
A project proposal must be developed by each student to ensure clarity of project objectives, methods and timescale. Whilst data will not be available at this stage the student must seek to produce a robust outline of their intended project, its justification and intended research methods.
COURSEWORK 2: INTERNSHIP PROJECT (80%) 7500 words
The internship project should be of value to both the organisation and the academic community. Students will be expected to ground their project in relevant theory, select appropriate research methods, conduct an acceptable piece of primary or secondary research, discuss this in light of the academic literature and make recommendations to the organisation.

Electronic Submission: You must submit your work via the Turnitin icon on the Blackboard Learn module area called ‘Internship Project’. It would be advisable to also email a copy to your supervisor.
All coursework should clearly state the name of your academic supervisor.
An ethical approval form MUST be completed by the student in conjunction with their supervisor. The project cannot continue without ethical approval. Student and supervisor should sign off on this. This must be attached to your project proposal in order to pass (see Appendix 7 for a copy of the Ethical Approval Form).
If, due to extenuating circumstances, an extension to the submission date is required, students should apply in writing to the Course Director using an EC1 form (a fillable version of this has been placed on Blackboard learn in the folder entitled “Module Information”). This must be approved by the Course Director no later than 5 days after the submission date, otherwise submissions shall be deemed to have failed.
Plagarism
Plagiarism occurs where acknowledgements are omitted or quotations from original sources are not clearly identified. If the University deems you to be guilty of this offence, the project may attract a mark of zero (see Plagiarism Policy for further details). Your project report should contain at the front a signed declaration stating that it is your own work and due acknowledgement has been made to the work of others. The University’s Policy and Guidance on Plagiarism is available from the Academic Office website at http://www.ulster.ac.uk/academicoffice/Policies.html/.
Referencing
All submitted work should follow the UBS Guide to Citation in the Harvard Style, which is accessible through the Library’s website: http://library.ulster.ac.uk/bus/harvard.pdf. A copy is also available from the Blackboard Learn area for this module.
Word Count
The word count should be documented within all submitted work. Penalties will be applied to work exceeding the specified word limit as follows:
+10% – no penalty
+>10% – 20% – 5% penalty
+>20% – 30% – 10% penalty
+>30% – 40% – 15% penalty
+>40% – 50% – 20% penalty
+>50% – maximum mark of 40
The reduction will be based on the student’s initial mark, prior to penalty.
Pass Mark The minimum pass mark is 50%.
SUPERVISORY GUIDELINES
As soon as supervision arrangements have been communicated to students, it is the student’s responsibility to initiate and maintain regular contact with their supervisor. 
Supervisors, within their area of responsibility, should ensure that the student’s proposed management project is appropriate as regards to resources and other constraints (including ethical approval).
The supervisor’s role is not necessarily one of ‘subject matter expert’, but to guide students on issues such as critical analysis of the literature, methodology, structure and scheduling.  The supervisor is also required to monitor any material (such as a questionnaire) that a student might be sending from the University to an external agency, as these need to fit within the remit of the Ulster Business School’s Ethical Approval Guidelines.
It must be remembered however that the management project belongs to the student and not the supervisor. This means that whilst a supervisor may provide advice and guidance, the student has to make a judgement as to whether or not to accept this. A student cannot come back and say that the supervisor ‘told’ him/her to put material into the management project. The final decision must rest with the student.
Students have to take responsibility for deciding when the management project is ready for submission. Although the supervisor can give guidance, it is not the supervisor’s duty to tell a student that the work is ready for submission, thereby implying that the management project is of a pass standard.
MEETINGS
Different models of supervision are acceptable, as are varying modes of communication (such as email), providing students’ needs are met within the boundaries expected of this relationship (as indicated above) and agreed to between supervisor and student
Students should be aware that particularly in the summer period lecturers are often out of the university and it is therefore imperative that they make contact as soon as possible to ensure that meetings and support can be balanced. DO NOT EXPECT TO LEAVE THIS TO THE LAST MINUTE. It is YOUR responsibility to initiate contact with the supervisor, including the first meeting.
Whilst it is difficult to suggest number and duration of meetings, a rule of thumb suggested to students is about once per month, to last for about one hour. At the first meeting, it is expected that students discuss with supervisors an overall framework and time-scale for their project, the availability of both parties during the coming period, and what each expects in terms of support and guidance including how many drafts it is reasonable for the supervisor to read (normally one). A very brief record of meetings is advisable. These might become particularly useful if a student enters into writing-up mode, or makes an appeal.
STUDENT RESPONSIBILITIES
Students are responsible for:
Contacting their supervisor at the earliest date to discuss their project.
Meeting to discuss the project at times to be agreed with their supervisor. It is the student’s responsibility to maintain regular contact with their supervisor.
Ensuring they have gained ethical approval for their proposed project.
Regularly reporting the progress of the project to their supervisor in accordance with any agreements made.
Keeping accurate records of supervision meetings.
Adhering to deadlines and ensuring that they allow adequate time for supervisors to give feedback.
Submitting the final written project in accordance with the instructions on dissertation presentation and submission stipulated in the module handbook.
Deciding if the project is ready for submission. The successful completion of the project belongs to the student and not the supervisor.
It is at the discretion of the Course Committee to decide on appropriate penalties for students who consistently fail to attend pre-scheduled meetings or to submit work as agreed.
APPENDICES
APPENDIX 1 – COURSEWORK ONE: STRUCTURE AND PRESENTATION OF PROJECT PROPOSAL
A project proposal must be developed by each student to ensure clarity of project objectives, methods and timescale. The proposal should include the following components:
TITLE: The title should reflect the project to be undertaken and should be concise (no more than 12 words).
PROJECT OBJECTIVES: These should be specific, measurable, simple and achievable. They specify what the project will deal with and should guide the flow and structure throughout.
IMPORTANCE OF THE PROJECT: This concerns whether or not the project is sufficiently important or significant to justify your efforts. If there is some statement by an authority as to the need for project, or if it can be demonstrated that this research is useful in the context of a major organisational problem, then these or other appropriate reasons should be concisely stated. 
SIGNIFICANT PRIOR RESEARCH (LITERATURE): This sets the context for the project, in terms of major preceding research. It is essentially the basis for the literature review in the management project. It will not be exhaustive at this stage; however, it should review major research works and authors in the area and indicate the theoretical underpinning for the proposed project.
RESEARCH APPROACH (METHODOLOGY): This section outlines how the project aims and objectives will be met. For example, is it to be via survey techniques, interviews or re-examining existing data? Where, or from whom, will data be collected? Again, this may be in tentative form; however it must provide a basic rationale for choices made. How will the data be analysed? Methodological choices must be justified in academic literature.
TIME BUDGET: A time budget and time schedule must be prepared. Students tend to underestimate the time required for completion of management projects. The important concept is realistic planning and this must depend on realistic time estimates. The best estimates are usually made by breaking down activities into small tasks, each with its own time estimate. The timetable should be presented clearly, in a bar chart or diagram.
REFERENCE LIST: All sources must be properly cited in the body of the proposal and a reference list provided. The Harvard referencing system must be used. The UBS Guide to Citation in the Harvard Style, is accessible through the Library’s website: http://library.ulster.ac.uk/bus/harvard.pdf and is also available from the Blackboard Learn area for this module.
PRESENTATION: The proposal should be 1500 words. The text of the proposal should be typed using Times New Roman or Arial size 12 font. One-and-a-half line spacing should be used. A cover sheet should be completed and inserted at the front of the document.
ETHICAL APPROVAL: An ethical approval form MUST be attached to the project proposal in order for this to be marked. Students should submit this in conjunction with their assigned supervisor.
The designated supervisor will mark the management project proposal.
