The apprenticeship scheme forms a vital component of Business Analysis and Consulting. 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 semester 1 classes, allowing them to deliver real work that can make an immediate impact to 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.
The scheme has a highly competitive selection process, where the students with the strongest generic skills and academic capabilities are chosen for external placements. Other students are also given valuable opportunities to work with external organisations in this 3-week period, such as in form of group projects analysing their operations.
