Course description
In theory, 4 or 5 different groups will work with an existing company in a real international business project on Finance/Insurance, on Marketing, on Law Practice, on Accountancy/Tax or on Office Management.
In practise however, the project’s contents and approach will depend on the kind of students. If, for example, 90% of all incoming students have a commercial/marketing background, we kindly request of the non-marketing students to participate in the project which will have a marketing background.
The content of the project is different every academic year and depends on the companies Arteveldehogeschool is working with at that moment and on their requests.

Teaching method

For 3 hours per week, in a fixed meeting room and in a fixed schedule, the students will have a meeting with their coach/teacher coaching the project. It is possible the external party (e.g. the company the students are doing the project for) is present during these meetings as well.

The coach/teacher and the external party will brief the students on the expected outputs/goals to be realized. The students are given ‘carte blanche’ to work on the project (they will be given a meeting room and decide themselves on the amount of hours they work on the project) but need to present their project progress on a weekly basis. Real goals will have to be achieved.

Visits to the company involved or to other locations related to the project are possible.

Course material

Normally none, but if required, documents will be put on Dileahs (digital learning platform of UC Arteveldehogeschool Ghent). Students can download them for free.


Examination and assessment method
Depending on the project, a mark will be given to the report/presentation/organisation of the project/the actual implementation/…
Students will receive a team mark and an individual mark (50 -50 %) and peer evaluation is involved.


Distance learning
Best case scenario: individual adaptation of project results/outputs
Worst case scenario: individual assignment (paper/report/project), to be made/developed at home and to be sent to Arteveldehogeschool for correction
