This course is intended to be taken just prior to completion of the program. It will help you to prepare an effective proposal for submission to the department for CMGT 8800 – Industry Based Project. Your industry sponsor is expected to provide occasional guidance and support relating to this activity. It is advised that you have both an industry sponsor and a topic chosen for your industry-based project before you register for this course. Alternatively, you could write a “mock” proposal (with a pre-chosen topic) for the course and then a second one once you have identified your sponsor and project.
