Introducing your organisation to MBA students and alumni

Here are some easy ways to attract students to your business and to your vacancies

Sponsor a student project

Sometimes employers use the Consultancy Challenge and Corporate Challenge projects to introduce their companies to students as a precursor to considering a more permanent role. The arrangement gives each party an excellent opportunity to assess suitability, fit, cultural match and career potential. Many students in the past have received full-time offers of work from their sponsor organisations following a successful project.

Project sponsors should note that being in a position to offer a job following a project is not a prerequisite for sponsoring a student team – all that is required is an interesting brief requiring consultancy by Masters-level students who already have at least three years' work experience. 

Other ways to promote your organisation

One of the most effective ways to encourage applications is to visit the Lancaster campus and present information on your career opportunities.

We normally schedule presentations at 6.00pm in the MBA lecture theatre. You can choose to host a short drinks or buffet reception afterwards.

We also have a base in London at The Work Foundation where students undertake part of the course, so activities can be delivered there if more convenient.
