A student project is the ideal way to gain targeted work on a business issue from a talented MBA or MSc student, equipped with the latest theories and practices. A project also provides the opportunity to test a candidate's suitability for a permanent position.
We will work with you to define the scope and desired deliverables of your project, advertise it for you and help you to recruit the right student.
Our MSc and MBA students are available to take part in corporate projects over the summer months (June-August). Deadlines have passed for 2020, but we very much welcome enquiries for 2021.
"This is the first time we’ve worked with Warwick Business School on this scheme and the whole process has been so well-organised and simple, it’s been quite amazing. I would say that the regularity and quality of the communication was particularly strong.
For us, the key benefit of the student project is the completely different perspective it offers to our work. This sort of diversity in expertise is, of course, invaluable and will help us shape a more rounded proposition going forward."
Suzee Laxton, Strategic Economic Development, Warwick District Council
"We had phenomenal interest in our project. I was more than happy with the support we received from WBS and massively impressed with the quality of candidates who put themselves forward for the project. The selected candidate was a credit to the Business School, working extremely hard on the project. She picked up the technical side quickly and produced some interesting models to help us understand our sales patterns, including trying to model the impact of weather on our sales - which is a challenge!”
Gillian Green, Community & Capability Manager, Sainsbury’s Argos
