Group consultancy projects
During your MSc you may elect for a course which involves a consultancy project; this involves working closely with companies or businesses as part of a team to assist with a real-life active project.
In most cases, the client will ask you to write a report which you will research and develop during the taught component of the course. Furthermore, there is likely to be an opportunity to present your findings back to the business.
Topics range from broad, strategic issues to more specialised business matters. Your group will have to work together to produce clear and practical recommendations while meeting deadlines.
Within modules of the finance programme our academic team bring in senior figures from relevant international organisations to talk about specific subject matter and its application to real world working challenges.
These lectures are followed by the opportunity to network further with the speaker and gain valuable career insight and advice from experienced professionals.
