Warwick Business School’s offer to local not-for-profit organisations

Warwick Business School is seeking business projects based in local not-for-profit organisations, which will enable their world-class MBA students to develop practical management skills while delivering a tangible and valuable service to the organisation.

The MBA Practice of Management students will spend up to six months focussing on a project of importance to the organisation, supported by a Warwick Business School mentor, with the aim of producing positive solutions of real and practical value. In return the organisation agrees to meet regularly with the student group to discuss project progress, allow the group adequate access to the information and resources required, and provide an honest and unbiased assessment of the quality, value and impact of the final project.

Practice of Management projects are very varied and in previous years have included:

  • Designing and running new events for Racing Club Warwick;
  • Designing activities to assist Warwickshire Police improve the effectiveness of its Safer Neighbourhoods teams;
  • Assisting the Hillfields Action Plan by designing and launching a wood recycling scheme;
  • Working with The Westwood School on an initiative to improve community cohesion and social responsibility.

If you believe your organisation could benefit from this opportunity please contact Olivia Brook at the Warwick Business School on 024 7657 2583 or by email to olivia.brook@wbs.ac.uk

Project proposals should be submitted by July 2009 and the Warwick Business School would be happy to guide you in this process.
