Opportunity to benefit from free student consultancy in the area of innovation

Posted: 14th September 2017

The University of Edinburgh Business School runs a postgraduate programme in Entrepreneurship and Innovation.

As part of the course the students work as a team of consultants to tackle the real-world challenges faced by organisations to consider approaches to managing innovation. The host organisation can be any size, private/public or third sector.

The students are tasked with identifying opportunities for innovation, selecting those that can be pursued, implementing these ideas into new products, services, processes and activities, technologies or business models, and designing a way to generate and capture value.

The projects are supervised by our academic colleagues. Past company hosts often find it a novel way to have some free consultancy done, looking at challenges from a slightly different perspective.

If this is something your organisation could be interested in, please contact Aidan Hetherington, Corporate Engagement Manager, on or 0131 650 9841 for an initial chat.
