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.
As an alumnus you can provide students with the opportunity to gain experience of working on real business issues, helping them prepare for work in the graduate market.
Students can work with your company on a particular issue or challenge set by you as the host organisation, and guided by us, for a period of around three to four months.
The student will usually undertake the project from May through to August, and will provide the organisation with a feedback in September, after the project is completed.
We shortlist project submissions around November to December for the following year, but we will discuss ideas for future projects at any time.
