Work Based Projects

Work based projects provide an opportunity to apply theory and knowledge to help solve business issues.

Working closely with a company or organisation, you will draw on your leadership and analytical skills to help resolve a real-life problem, or investigate an area of interest.   

As well as developing your business acumen, the work based project will allow you to expand your professional network and develop relationships that may benefit you throughout your career.  

Work based projects have been undertaken in a wide variety of sectors including engineering, healthcare, logistics, manufacturing, professional services, renewable energy and retail. 

Project providers have been located all over the world and have ranged from startup companies to global organisations:

Recent projects have included:

  • Rebranding of a family business following diversification
  • Market research and business planning for a new start-up venture
  • Development of a football academy
  • Research on how to achieve sustainable competitive advantage

This project definitely gave me confidence, and I can use the project as an example of how well I can do.
