Support and develop future marketing practitioners with a real-world project

At Manchester Metropolitan University, we pride ourselves on helping students to acquire a portfolio of skills and experience that will not only repay their investment in education but also allow them to thrive in their careers.

The Big Agency unit has been developed around coaching philosophies, and is designed to encourage students to think about their motivations, their skills, and to give them an opportunity to work on a ‘real world’ project to gain an insight into what the working world ‘really’ looks like – some need encouragement, and some need a reality check!

We’d like to invite business and creative agency partners to support our second year marketing students on the Big Agency employability 2017/18 year through provision of a small ‘real world’ project for them to work on over the year by 11th September 2017.

There’s no financial cost to you or your business and students will not need to be at your offices. All we ask is that you:

·      Are keen to support and help to develop future marketing practitioners

·      Can provide us with a ‘real world’ marketing project for the students to answer over a 21-week period. (A template is provided on page 4).

·      Can give a bit of your time to work with the student project manager

·      Appreciate you’ll be working with 2nd year, undergraduate students not full-time, experienced consultants (!)
