Our three week journey in the 2020 Global Scope program facilitated by Western Sydney University and Practera began this week where we got to meet our team of 6 international students from WSU. We discussed the project brief which is to undertake a competitor analysis of 8 likeminded business associations. Thanks in advance to Amanda Taylor of KPMG for mentoring the students as they move through the project. We look forward to updating members on the project outcomes!
How does the Global Scope work?
The Practera team (who run Global Scope) will assign a business problem to teams based on final numbers and participating organisations once students are accepted into the program.
Students will create working briefs, liaise with their team members, be guided by professionals and deliver process improvement options or external research options back to the clients.
Students will learn soft skills, teamwork, project management, working with industry professionals, increasing their professional networks, application of business skills and improving their overall employability.
