MSc and MBA Student Consultancy Projects

Postgraduate students from Nottingham Business School can tackle a wide range of real-life business projects as part of their studies. If you have a business challenge, or piece of research you need to do and require some fresh thinking, our highly motivated students may be able to help resolve it. You would in turn be of assistance to their learning by helping them practice valuable business skills. A project usually lasts about six to eight weeks, enough time to get some really in-depth analysis for your company.

The briefs we receive deal with a wide range of business areas, including market position and communications, publicity and marketing, sustainable business development, human resources and recruitment strategy, and website and sales development.

Companies that consultancy groups have previously worked for include:

  • Nottingham Evening Post
  • Gallant Marketing
  • Futures Housing
  • Nottinghamshire Police
  • Wastecycle
  • Age Concern
  • E.ON
  • Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust
  • BioCity
  • Paragon Law
  • Experian

Richard Bloomfield, Website Editor, Central Source Ltd commented "the students came up with some fresh ideas that we hadn't considered, including viral videos and buzz marketing."

Whatever your challenge, if you have an issue but lack the resources to solve it yourself we would like to hear from you!

Interested in setting our students a project? Get in touch!

As well as providing the students with a valuable learning experience, the projects and ensuing recommendations can also make a significant contribution to both the companies involved and business development in the region. We are always looking for new organisations to work with, and would welcome projects from across all areas of business, finance and economics.

Projects typically last from early May to early July, and as the client you will receive a verbal presentation by the students, followed by a written report. There is no cost to the client organisation; just a willingness to devote some time, energy and enthusiasm to meetings with the team and attendance at the assessed presentation.

To find out more about how your business can work with our talented postgraduate students either on individual projects or in group projects, contact Angela Scott by email or by phone on +44 (0)115 848 3888.
