Wavelength Marketing agency 


Most organisations are constantly seeking to improve their finance, marketing, sales or operations functions but rarely have the time or resources to address these key strategic issues. With over 300 high calibre full-time postgraduate students from 47 different countries bringing a wide range of skills and perspectives, we offer exciting opportunities for companies to link with students by providing placements and internships or through a management project or our Company Based Dissertation Scheme.


All our MBA students spend up to three months on a management project exploring a current business issue and applying the theories and techniques learned during the MBA.

A company-based management project allows students to work with a company or organisation helping them to resolve real business issues.

A management project will add value, expertise and efficiency to your business.

For further information and if you are interested in being involved, please contact Dr Duncan R Shaw (MBA Company-based Projects Co-ordinator) at or on +44 (0) 115 846 7756


If you have a business problem you don't have time to address, Nottingham University Business School can help through our MSc student projects scheme.

Every year we partner students with affiliated organisations to research a variety of business topics as part of their summer dissertations. The organisation benefits from high quality research they can apply to help resolve a key business problem and our students gain experience and a chance to put their knowledge to use in a real-world situation.

Our MSc programme covers a wide range of business related subjects in the areas of Accounting and Finance; International Business, Management and Organisation; Operations Management; Marketing; and Sustainability.

To get involved please contact Ewan Henry (Employer Relations Consultant) at or on +44 (0) 115 748 4349


Placements and Internships

Providing a paid placement or internship will benefit your organisation because:

  • You receive specialist consultancy with fresh insights and practical solutions.
  • The focus is on a specific business issue using students who are at the forefront of business knowledge.
  • You benefit from the expertise of academic staff at the School.

As an alumnus, it can also give you an opportunity to interact with the School, meet up with some of your former academic teachers and feel a renewed sense of involvement with our cutting edge research.
