Business student consultancy projects

Our business consultancy projects will involve students from a range of business courses offering local organisations free consultancy to investigate specific business challenges or opportunities and make recommendations at the end of the project by producing an in-depth analysis, a final written report and presentation.

Our group projects usually commence in late January and individual projects from May. They will run between eight and 16 weeks, dependent on which course the student is registered on.

Business School courses offering business consultancy projects:


  • Master of Business Administration
  • MA Marketing
  • MSc Business Management


  • BA(Hons) Business Management and Leadership (Organisation Change Project)
  • BA(Hons) Business and Human Resource Management (HRM Project)

"In this particular case the timing was perfect, there was a specific piece of urgent work that needed to be done, with specific skills required to do it. The idea the student proposed to us was a perfect fit for the job. The student provided an excellent and very thorough piece of work, but more than that, became an integral part of the team in his short time with us. He needed to speak to partners, providers and stakeholders and did so with exceptional professionalism."
