Work Based projects

Work based projects and consultancy opportunities provide the chance to apply your knowledge and leadership skills, and to gain experience in a different sector and/or job function.

You can compete for these opportunities through the extensive networking opportunities provided on the MBA programme.

Work based projects take place during the summer and take around three months to complete. You may even be able to undertake your project outside the UK. Students have undertaken work based projects in Colombia, China and Japan, among many other countries.

The work based project allowed me to gain invaluable work experience in the UK for three months. This helped me apply the knowledge and skills acquired during my MBA to a large business environment, as well as utilizing my technical background. By the end of the project, I was able to create a huge and extremely valuable network of contacts that greatly enhanced my entrepreneurial career prospects.
