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.

The project will take place over Summer 2017, but we are currently taking expressions of interest and welcome your ideas for further discussion.

You can find further information about hosting a student project here.
