|Detailed Brief for Individual/Group Assessment|
|Assignment Title: (A) Group Business Plan and (B) Final reflective report.
Description of the assignment:
Course assessment requirements for this module involve one team or project-based assignment accounting for 20% of the marks and one individual assignment accounting for 80% of the marks. Please note that the pass is on aggregate – in other words, it is possible to fail in the first element but pass overall.
(A) Group Business Plan (20%)
In your groups you will then have to plan and execute an ‘entrepreneurial project’. The nature of the project is your choice but your aim will be to devise something that can be related to core theory on this module. The requirement is that you will spend a minimum of 8 hours delivering the project. Further details about the types of projects you might consider will be discussed in class.
Attention should be paid within the plan document to:
o an audit of your social media resources and aims and objectives for them
o environmental or ‘green’ issues.
o assessment of risk (see Risk Assessment under Units)
Prior to running the project, informal discussion (not assessed) of the team’s project plan will take place in-class. Taking into account the formative feedback from your discussion and/or presentations, you will then submit an amended (team) proposal in the form of a business plan. This is the first assessment.
(B) Individual Reflective Report (80%)
The report is a reflective piece of work where you will primarily report on your experience in planning, organising and running your activity and what you learnt along the way. Your report should include consideration of your personal experiential learning which demonstrates understanding of entrepreneurial trait theory in relation to your individual characteristics.
You will also discuss key topics covered throughout the module and demonstrate your ability to apply academic models and theories to a real-life business process. Make links therefore with academic theory to support the points you make where appropriate. Theory can be found in lecture notes, recommended reading and academic journal articles. Word limit – 3000 words (excluding appendices).
Harvard Referencing should be used throughout.
Your report needs to be well structured and presented professionally. It is recommended that you organise your report in a logical way. Further details will be available on StudyNet and there is constant opportunity for questions and feedback in class.
For supporting information on group/team work, please see the Teamwork resources on the CASE website
Any specific instructions:
Students are recommended to keep a reflective log or diary to support the second piece of coursework.
Work submitted late, or plagiarism will be subject to standard penalties.
Students obtaining less than 20% for the module overall, will not normally be eligible for a referral.
Note to all students: Marking and referencing
All student work needs to be of a high academic standard, in terms of written English and use of the Harvard Referencing System (HRS). This forms part of the UH Grading Criteria. Mark schemes in Module Guides provide additional detail on what, specifically, is required of students in each module’s assessment. Students should refer to their Programme Handbook for more details on the UH Grading Criteria and the requirement to use the HRS.
Performance will be assessed using HBS PG Grading Criteria and Mark scheme. The HBS Generic Grading Criteria for all forms of assessment is available in your Programme Handbook and can also be found on the CASE website using the link provided.
