Business Consultancy Project Awards and Networking Event #BCP2019
We are celebrating the successful completion of the Business Consultancy Projects by our students. We are also recognising the commitment of our local client organisations in providing projects to help our students develop important employability and life skills.
The Business Consultancy Projects involve small teams of students, from the Faculty of Business and Law, working with local organisations to investigate specific business challenges or opportunities and produce sustainable solutions. Clients benefit from having a fresh set of minds, from diverse backgrounds, analysing their business challenge independently.
If you want to be involved with our Business Consultancy Projects in 2020, this is a great opportunity to hear about the benefits and how to apply.
Come and join students, clients and our staff in celebrating the success of Business Consultancy Projects.
