Engage with students
The success of our Postgraduate programmes is underpinned by our students work on solving real business issues.
First, students work on short projects for companies throughout the year as part of their learning. Second, students spend three months working with organisations from all sector types where they deliver a piece of consultancy work. Companies to participate recently include Tesco Bank, the Scottish Government, dstl, SIMUL8, AMEY, and M&Co.
Finally, every year in January, students complete a three-week apprenticeship with organisations. The apprenticeship scheme forms a vital component of our programmes. Through the scheme, many of our students spend an invaluable 3 weeks embedded in the analytical function of their host organisation. Students work on all manner of projects that link directly to their classes, allowing them to deliver real work that can make an immediate impact on their host organisations. Every year, our students gain not only valuable experience that is relevant to their job hunt but also make contacts that can be of assistance throughout their career. Examples of some of the host companies for 2018 apprenticeships are: Aegon; Capita; Diageo; Doosan Babcock; Rolls Royce; Scottish Police Authority; Scottish Rugby Union; SYSTRA.
