Opportunity to partner with UCD Smurfit Business School

Your company has an opportunity to partner with one or more student groups undertaking their Masters in Project Management at UCD Smurfit Graduate School of Business. As part of their Scope & Feasibility module, Masters student study teams of 4 or 5 conduct a feasibility analysis where they examine a company and offer options for expansion or development.


During the first class of the semester on Monday, 21 January 2019, the classes will listen to 15 minute presentations from the companies participating, and each group will rank their choices of company to work with, and then be allocated (by the Programme Director, Joe Houghton) 1 company to work with. There are around 10 student groups across 2 classes, so each company will probably have 1 or 2 student groups working with them.


The group’s output is a professionally presented consultancy type report, delivered in early April 2019. Based on expected effort for such an assignment, each student would typically put in around 100 hours of effort into researching and writing up this report, so your company would benefit from 1 or 2 x 400-500 hours of high-quality consultancy input from a set of multi-national and highly motivated groups of top students at one of the world’s top 100 Business Schools.


If your company is interested in taking part in this please contact joe.houghton@ucd.ie for more details before 21 December 2018.
