The skillset of our academic staff is available to external organisations to diagnose and resolve a plethora of business and management issues. The competencies embedded in the department lend themselves in particular to Risk and Reliability, Operational Efficiency Improvements, Optimisation, Data Analysis, Project Delay and Disruption, Performance Measurement, Simulation and Strategic Options Development Analysis (SODA).
The success of our Masters classes is underpinned by the fact we expect our students to work on and solve real business issues.

As a Business School, our laboratory is almost any organisation regardless of size; we have worked with all manner of enterprises from sole traders to multi-nationals in a range of all sectors. We believe the quality and value of our academic output is a function of the relationships we maintain with our external partners. In the last few years we have conducted research and delivered papers in partnership with local, national and international organisations.
We passionately believe that the learning delivered to students is dramatically enhanced by involving external organisations, in the last 6 months we have had representatives from a wide range of organisations including the Scottish Government, British Airways, PA Consulting, M&Co, Metis Partners and SIMUL8 deliver presentations to our students.
