Masters level students available for projects

Surrey Business School has an internationally recognised reputation for teaching excellence and a long tradition of providing students on placement that make a real difference to businesses.

Building on this success, the Business School is seeking businesses interested in offering Masters students a 6 month project placement in areas such as business analytics, digital marketing, HRM and strategic management.

Post-graduate placements are designed to help businesses of any size target great talent at real-world business challenges – without a long-term commitment and at relatively low-cost.

Post-graduate students have already proved a success with companies such a Pfizer, Tesco, Bank of Thailand as well as a number of local and Research Park companies.

Benefits to businesses:
• A short-term (6 month) commitment
• Project oriented and problem-solving focus
• Specialised expertise in one of five core business areas
• Contact with MSc Programme Directors to help define your project
• Thorough interview and selection process to match your needs to the right student

Students will begin their placements in July. Whilst opportunities with Surrey Research Park companies will be prioritised, businesses are encouraged to express an interest as soon as possible to ensure they have access to the widest pool of candidates possible.
