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.

Projects take place over the summer, but we welcome expressions of interest at any time.

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