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.
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.
One of the main reasons for deciding to progress with a Masters at the University of Stirling was not only the strong reputation of the course, but also the opportunity to carry out my dissertation with the Making the Most of Masters scheme. This offers vital experience often missing from similar courses, giving graduates a competitive edge and increasing employability.
