Would you like to tap into the fresh insights of our students? With the support of our team at London Met, our students can offer free consultancy advice to SMEs, multi-national companies and not-for-profit organisations who are looking to grow or change the direction of their business.
We have the technology to enable you to collaborate with our students remotely – meaning you can do this from the comfort of your own home or workplace and at a time convenient to you.
The students will work in groups to provide research, advice and recommendations tailored to your organisation’s needs and for you to consider.
Making use of our student consultancy can be a "win win" for all. Whilst you are gaining from the fresh insights of our students, they are also benefitting from a vital learning experience – putting their academic knowledge into practice on a project for you – which can enhance their employability and add to their CV.
You can access this free of charge, and all that we ask is that is you set clear deliverables, offer students sufficient opportunity to communicate with you, and provide students feedback on their work at the end of the project.
