Professional Practice research submissions


Research for our Master of Professional Practice students is centred on an in-depth industry-relevant project, in virtually any discipline or sector. This can be carried out in an organisation a student works for or with, has a key functional relationship with, or in their self-employment. Students investigate the issue they have identified, develop an approach for resolving it, and implement processes to achieve the desired outcome.
