Details about that should be confirmed with your lecturer. Please, note it is the responsibility of the group members to ensure that the video and audio is clear should you opt for video submission. Any video that cannot be properly assessed would result in no marks been awarded to members of such groups

This assignment aims at ensuring that students have familiarised themselves with a general framework of at least one management related topic. Students will be required to apply relevant theoretical concepts with the use of practical examples in most cases in a written research paper and discuss their topic via a live presentation.
