Next trimester, our Student Futures Team are helping up to 90 Business School MBA(LP) students to find placements, aiming to place 30 students within University departments and teams. More information on the programme can be found here.
Would you or your team be interested in hosting a student?
The University has been hosting MBA(LP) students for the last three years. Projects are varied and can include data analysis, desktop research and project mapping skills. Our team can provide you with example project proposals which give you further information on the breadth and variety of projects offered.
Placements for Trimester 2 will be unpaid and will be for six weeks at 25 hours per week, taking place from mid-February. The MBA(LP) placement is an opportunity for the student to familiarise themselves with your department and team and gain some general work experience, as well as having the opportunity to work on a project topic.
Our team will work with you to make the process as simple as possible.
Step 1 – Creation of a short project proposal
Please include a summary of your team and department, details of the proposed project and what you hope the project will accomplish, why the project should be undertaken and how the project will help your department/ team. Please send your Project Proposals to our Business School Placement team. If you have any questions about the placement, email Alice Forbes, who will be happy to support you through the process.
Step 2 – Consider how you would like to recruit the student
We can nominate a student to your team based on your project proposal, or we can arrange for you to meet with students for short interviews.
Step 3 – Create an induction schedule
Consider who will supervise the student during the placement, what meetings the student should attend to help complete your project, where the student will sit when in your office and what resources the student may need. Consider the timeline for the project and milestones.
