Knowledge Transfer Partnership

  • Fast-tracking graduates into industrial management for your company's projects

The Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) Scheme is designed to facilitate knowledge transfer from the University to the industrial partner. As part of this, it provides academic support for the fast-track development of recent graduates into industrial management.

The graduate, based in the company and supervised by a member of the centre over a typical period of two years, works on a project or linking projects identified by the company. The cost to the company is subsidised by the KTP scheme, making it an attractive proposition to an organisation with a major development need.

Postgraduate courses

MSc in Business Analytics

During summer term, our Master's students specialising in Business Analytics embark on company-based projects. These projects offer a very attractive way of obtaining the latest methods from the classroom and fresh insights into specific issues an organisation is facing. Each project is supervised by an experienced Centre for Marketing Analytics and Forecasting member to ensure its success. Such projects may often lead to the recruitment of the student after the completion of the project.

The MSc Summer research projects are offered free of charge to companies.
