Consultancy Projects

Consultancy Projects bring together organisations and postgraduate students to undertake collaborative projects during the summer months (May/June to August). Students, with the support of an academic supervisor, will work with you on tackling a relevant organisational challenge.

This project gives students the opportunity to integrate the knowledge and skills that they have developed during their Masters degree and apply them in solving a challenge set by you.

Students bring expertise in a number of areas including strategy, operations, marketing, finance, human resources, innovation, entrepreneurship, internationalisation, business analytics, sustainability and energy management.

Projects are allocated following a matching process which may include competitive interviews involving the host organisation.
