What can our learners do for your company?

Looking to elevate your organization, and bring it to the next level? Bring on students from University of Sussex to be your student-consultants, in a project-based experience. Students will work on one main project over the course of the semester, connecting with you as needed with virtual communication tools.

Students in this program/course will have training in leadership, management and financial skills. They’ll gain an in-depth appreciation of the financial environment in both the public and private sectors. As the course progresses, students will have the opportunity to study specialised topics in management or finance to match your career interests.
