The Masters Consultancy Challenge gives you the opportunity to work for an employer here on campus. You will work in interdisciplinary groups to solve a real-world business problem. The programme, run in June, also offers training on relevant skills such as teamwork, commercial awareness and pitching.
“It’s all about being able to link what you learn at the postgraduate level with your practical ability in a real world situation.”
This kind of experience is valued by employers and is great for your CV and interview answers:
“It is inspirational to see students from various degrees and backgrounds participate and broaden their skillsets which gives their CVs a worthy boost. Even if all the students don't decide to pursue the course of management/consultancy, the challenge undeniably builds transferrable skills such as presenting, team work and time management which will help them in all manners of jobs.”

Come and enjoy the intellectual buzz!”
