Have you identified an issue or opportunity in your business requiring more research and dedicated attention? Are you stretched for resources to take on this project? Would you like to support the leading business minds of tomorrow to put their learning into practice?

The Business Clinic at Queen’s Management School invites businesses, charities, government and not-for-profit organisations of all shapes and sizes to submit applications for help with a specific business project.

Your business will be matched with a team of undergraduate students, who will be supported by an academic supervisor. Between September 2023 and April 2024, the team will carry out the project benefitting from structured guidance on how to approach the problem. At the end, they will produce a report, presentation and recommendations for the business, putting their degrees into practice.

Project ideas could include creating a social media strategy, researching a new route to market, exploring the effects of AI on your business, or any other business matters that you or your team have identified as needing support.

Over the years, student consultancy teams in the Business Clinic have worked with companies such as Danske Bank, KPMG, Innovation Factory, Bryson Charity Group, and AllState NI.

It costs nothing to the business to take part, and spaces are limited. Your application must contain a brief overview of the project you would like to tackle. After submission, Queen’s Management School Director of Business Engagement, Julie McCandless, will be in touch to discuss your project.
