Student Projects:

A student project at the Management School is when a Masters student (MSc or MBA) carries out their research dissertation project, as part of their studies, within an organisational setting. Students can work with your company on a particular issue or challenge set by you as the host organisation for a period of around 3-4 months.

The project will take place over the summer next year, but we are currently taking expressions of interest and welcome your ideas for further discussion.

You can find further information about hosting a student project including a timeline of the process on our Host a Student Project pages here.

Become an eMentor and share your experience with our students as well as developing your own skills throughout the programme.

Many management alumni share their expertise through the Careers' Service eMentoring Scheme. By mentoring a student, you can offer insight into your job, the skills required, the challenges you face, and your advice for students wanting to pursue a similar role to yours. Communication is by email and/or Skype and is typically one exchange per week with your mentee for 8-10 weeks.
