Nottingham MBAs

MBA Company-based projects

Every summer our MBAs work with different firms on specific research projects to assist their business objectives. Our MBAs have business experience and can help you in all sorts of project areas such as market analyses, process modelling, efficiency improvements, strategic analysis, marketing strategies and other key business tasks. As well as their own experience we support the MBAs with an academic supervisor from an appropriate discipline and all the information technology resources of the university library’s business databases.

All that we need at this stage is a one pager on the project background drivers, the suggested project activities and your required outcomes. This together with the job title of the project sponsor/ contact will form most of the advertisement.

We work with firms to agree projects in December and January.

The projects run from approximately mid-June to mid-September and could focus upon virtually any issue that you need investigated at that time. This includes work finding information from external sources or industry analysis. All MBAs are supported by an academic supervisor and are chosen by the client after they submit CVs and are interviewed. This is a research project but like in normal job situations clients may or may not appoint and projects may be for groups or individual MBAs from the many different countries on the course this year.

It is perfectly normal for the MBA to sign the client’s Non-Disclosure Agreement. The client pays the MBA’s expenses according to the client’s own expense system.
