Student projects

You have the opportunity to work with both our undergraduate and postgraduate students through individual or group projects.

You’ll benefit from access to world-class education and knowledge being applied to your business. Our students get to apply what they learn in a practical setting and provide you, as the host organisation, with an outside perspective on an opportunity or problem.

Consultancy projects

Access our Masters students’ diverse knowledge base and fresh recommendations on an area that is important to your future business success. You’ll get a free, high-quality piece of research or consultancy that’ll lead to commercial benefits for your organisation. Consultancy projects usually happen during the summer months, May/June to August and involve a matching process to make sure you’re getting the skills to fit your business.

Our students bring expertise in a number of areas including strategy, operations, marketing, finance, human resources, innovation, entrepreneurship, business analytics and sustainable management. One thing’s for sure, you’ll benefit from recommendations from talented students with a passion for business.

Marketing projects

Our students can help you investigate a marketing topic currently facing your organisation over 11 weeks. You’ll come away with a report and presentation of insightful recommendations. Marketing projects are a core component for both undergraduate and postgraduate marketing degrees. You’ll gain students with a zest for marketing and a drive to find the best solution to your requirement. In turn, you’ll be helping students build confidence in their ability to make marketing decisions.

Data science projects

The analysis of data to inform business decisions is vital. Our MSc Data Science for Business students can work with you over an 11 week period for your business analytics-related project. You’ll have the support you need to exploit the benefits of data analysis, making use of valuable data to back-up your business aims.

Innovation management projects

Our Innovation Management module allows our third year undergraduate students to help your business on a short-term micro-project. We match groups of students with local organisations to explore an aspect of innovation management, covering projects ranging from the early creative and product development stages, through to market adoption and economic development. It may include an examination of organisational systems, structures and processes for innovative capacity, or technological forecasting and road-mapping.
