MSc students will begin the practice track element of their degree this month. Seven companies will support the MSc Practice Track project:

Students will apply learned concepts and theories to practical problems and issues. In teams they will analyse business challenges presented to them by one of the supporting companies. Using skills gained during their course, they will have two weeks to develop solutions.

They will then present their findings to representatives from each organisation. Some groups will visit these companies and conduct staff interviews to inform their presentations.

Many of the students will also produce a written report that explores a particular aspect of the business challenge in greater depth.

Helen Auckland, PGT External Projects & Engagement Officer, said:

The MSc Practice Track is a great opportunity for students to work on a real business challenge. They will learn to effectively work in a team, present ideas professionally and add real value to an organisation.
