Individual project

The MBA Project represents the culmination of your MBA course, providing you with an opportunity to apply the skills and knowledge that you have acquired to the resolution of a business problem, or to investigate an area that interests you further.

Your project can be organisation based, desk research based, or entrepreneurial in nature, depending upon your aims and ambitions. If you choose to complete an organisation-based assignment it is a great chance to work on a live management issue and to forge and develop links with employers and industry. If you have ambitions to start your own company, the MBA Project represents an excellent opportunity to compile a comprehensive business plan.

We have a dedicated MBA Project Manager who will help you find, select and plan your project and will act as a liaison between you, the Business School and the host company.
