Making the Most
- Do you want to enhance your employability whilst studying?
- Are you interested in gaining insight, knowledge and networks in a specific market sector?
You could achieve this through your Masters dissertation by taking on a Making the Most of Masters (MMM) project offered by a business or organisation, giving you experience working on a real-life issues.
What is Making the Most of Masters?
Making the Most of Masters (MMM) is a initiative aimed at building links between universities and businesses (public, private and third sector). Many of our postgraduate courses provide opportunities for Masters students to undertake collaborative dissertation projects with businesses for mutual benefit.
These projects are the same length as a university-based dissertation, usually running from May/June to September across a wide range of economic sectors.
Students can either work at the organisation, or the project can be based at the university, or students may move between both locations as required. We’ve already worked with over 200 different local, national and international business organisations.
