Final Project

Overcome a real business problem

This module allows you to put the theory taught on the MBA into practice. You’ll develop specialised expertise by researching a real business issue and influence real commercial outcomes, if your recommendations are implemented by a sponsoring organisation.

This project can be selected as a double-weighted elective module as part of the Weekend MBA experience. It requires you to submit a report of up to 15,000 words for assessment. Your report must have a critical, evaluative or analytical element, and add value by creating something new in terms of method, application, ideas and knowledge.

Projects range from consultancy assignments to theoretical analyses, and can be sponsored by companies. You may choose to do your project with your own organisation. With the flexibility of options offered this project is a great way for you to link this project to your career objectives.

The project is completed through the summer period.

You will:

  • Understand a specific aspect of management, industry or the economy in depth

  • Develop analytical expertise in, for example, research methods, financial analysis, modelling, information technology or forecasting
  • Understand and carry out high-level research, gaining familiarity with sources and how to use data, as well as the ability to evaluate and synthesise existing literature and present findings accurately, clearly and concisely

  • Influence real commercial outcomes through the implementation of your recommendations by your sponsoring organisation.
