Assessment 2: Individual written coursework (70% of unit assessment)
Task: “Specify a professional role which you would like to hold in the future. Also specify an organisation, or type of organisation, within which you can envision yourself occupying that professional role. Reflect, in your essay, on how your risk management knowledge and understanding, gained through your MANG6182 studies, might help prepare you for that role.
Word limit: No more than 2,000 words, not including references.
Choose any organisational role and organisational context you wish. This freedom to choose is incorporated within the question to allow students studying highly diverse subjects, ranging between corporate risk management, finance, global security and cultural heritage, to all write about professions and organisational contexts that are of interest to them. What matters is that what you are able to reflect on how what you have learned on the module might offer you some practical value in your preferred career.
Remember that although the question does not specifically call for ‘critical reflection’ it is always a good idea to look for opportunities for critical analysis. Aim for a balanced understanding of risk management professionalism which recognises that there are often both upsides and downsides to be considered when some idea is put into practice. A general rule of marking for qualitative assessments on all modules is that students displaying a critical mind will get higher marks.
You may refer to ideas which you have written about previously in your 1200 individual report; however, in such cases take care to avoid self -plagiarism. Never re-use text which has already been submitted in a previous assessment because Turnitin will detect this as plagiarism and it will be treated as plagiarism.
Nature of Assessment: This is a SUMMATIVE ASSESSMENT. See ‘Weighting’ section above for the percentage that this assignment counts towards your final module mark.
Word Limit: +/-10% either side of the word count (see above) is deemed to be acceptable. Any text that exceeds an additional 10% will not attract any marks. The relevant word count includes items such as cover page, executive summary, title page, table of contents, tables, figures, in-text citations and section headings, if used. The relevant word count excludes your list of references and any appendices at the end of your coursework submission.
You should always include the word count (from Microsoft Word, not Turnitin), at the end of your coursework submission, before your list of references.

It is vital that you make a note of your Submission ID (Digital Receipt Number). This is a unique receipt number for your submission, and is proof of successful submission. You may be required to provide this number at a later date. We recommend that you take a screenshot of this page, or note the number down on a piece of paper.
