Cumbria Students' Consultancy Challenge Could Benefit North Lancashire Businesses

A group of final year students from the University of Cumbria are looking for a challenge which could benefit businesses in North Lancashire.

The group is working towards a module which aims to provide them with the opportunity to develop and apply the skills of problem solving and project management.

It also includes financial, time, resource and relationship management.

Now, all they need is a business with an ongoing or upcoming project which is willing to let them get involved.

Steve Wood, development manager at the Lancaster campus of the University of Cumbria (pictured), said: “The module is part of the culmination of our students’ undergraduate study in the fields of international business management, accounting and finance, international marketing management, computing and IT and business entrepreneurship and computing innovations.

“They will work as part of a group to work to a specific client brief learning the attributes of project management, enhancing team work and leadership and applying existing and researched subject specialist knowledge.”

The challenge can be set by the employer and, according to the uni', ideally should be "a substantial and sustained" piece of work.

The project will contribute to the employability of students by focusing on the importance that employers place on knowledge, creativity and skills.

Steve added: “The project is free, fully supported by academic staff with no cost to the business, other than a little of your time.”

Businesses interested in using the free support? can contact Steve by emailing steven.wood@cumbria.ac.uk
