**Work placements**

The MBA Project can provide an opportunity for industrially commissioned or industrially based work at a high level. It is also worth noting that MBA projects carried out by part time students are typically of significant importance to their companies and can raise a student's profile in the organisation.

Within the constraints of the maximum length of the course, it is also possible to extend the project for a full-time student to work in an industrial or commercial setting (three months is sometimes short for training and specialist skills acquisition to an M level concurrent with acclimatisation to the industrial setting). If a full-time student finds employment with a company at the start of the project stage, they may be able to transition to part-time status, thus allowing one year for project completion.

**Live projects**

You will attend a two-day workshop to prepare you for the disciplines required to carry out effective research and reporting of your work. You will be allocated a staff member as your project supervisor who will act as a mentor to assist you through the project.
