Business Challenges & Projects


Host innovative online challenges or work with us to generate business challenges for groups of students to enhance their employability.

Alongside our Insights Shadowing & Treks, we offer employers an opportunity to work with our students solving important business issues on areas including sustainable growth, green finance and CSR.

Who's it most suited for?

Our virtual business projects are hosted on a dedicated platform - Practera, but we're always looking for interest in partnering with us and them, broadening our pool of employers. This may be suitable for multinational organisations but also start-ups and charities keen to build their brand.

Virtual micro-projects enable students from a variety of academic programmes to work together in a multi-disciplinary manner whilst we're developing further ideas for new initiatives in 2022-23.

Our most popular activity is hosted on the experiential learning platform Practera, where students work in groups on an industry-relevant project.

Partner employers provide them with industry insight and feedback to support them through to completion.

We're developing ideas for more work in this area for autumn 2022.

Do you have your own competition or hackathon?

Many of our students are keen to expand their knowledge and skills participating in interactive competitions, and they're a great way to uncover new talent.

Whether you're running stock picking, trading, writing, debating or society competitions we can advertise through our blog, social media channels and newsletters if they meet our terms & conditions.
