The subject at the centre of this case study is LB5218: Business Plan: Application of Strategy. This is a capstone subject taken in the final year of the Masters of Business Administration (MBA) program. The international design of the subject seeks to equip international students with a work-relevant skill set through a work placement with a local small-medium sized (SME) firm and a non-profit organisation. The subject brings together the theoretical materials covered in the course (including theories of ethical and social responsibility in professional practice and aligns them with the university's strategic intent to develop graduates who make a difference in the local context) and introduces community-based learning experiences through collaboration with a Singaporean SME firm and a non-profit organisation. Students are encouraged to become work-ready, contribute to community and be aware of intercultural competencies and differences.
