Description Applied Project (Human Resources and Management) is an integrated capstone unit that brings together the skills and understandings HRM and management students have developed during their course of study. The unit encourages HRM and management students to demonstrate their ability to solve multidisciplinary problems in relation to current and future issues that affect the application of human resource and management functions in contemporary workplace and industry contexts. The unit will also allow students to critically evaluate issues critical to these professional domains to determine and assess effective solutions. The topics are determined from year to year by discussions between the individual student, the unit coordinator and the student's chosen supervisor.
