Master's Consultancy Challenge
Master's students at the Management School have the opportunity to take part in the ‘We can work it out’ master’s consultancy challenge. Students form several groups and are presented with consultancy problems from a number of organisations.
In 2018, Unilever, Mando, Airbus, JigTalk and Totem learning all took part in the challenge and worked with our students. During the challenge students have access to a consultancy expert and benefit from workshops such as ‘developing consultancy skills’ and ‘pitching an idea’.
This year’s students have visited blue chip employers, including Santander and Unilever.
Employers such as PwC, Deloitte, KPMG, Vodafone and Jaguar Land Rover, visit the campus to meet students and to deliver workshops and presentations.
Your MSc will be busy and demanding, so for your convenience, we deliver weekly career webinars which can be watched live or viewed later at a time and date that suits you.
Workshops and seminars
We deliver a wide range of career related workshops and seminars which provide you with the opportunity to develop employability skills and to prepare for the recruitment process. Sessions include Successful Networking, Creating a winning CV and Preparing for Assessment Centres.
There are two annual careers fairs which provide you with the chance to meet over 70 recruiters at one time, in one venue. There are several other specialist fairs held throughout the year.
Our innovative and highly specialised career software programme, Careerhub, brings together a wealth of opportunities, from part-time jobs and internships through to graduate job vacancies.
