Working with UCL School of Management students

UCL School of Management is looking for organisations to work with our talented students throughout their dissertation projects. From data analytics to problem-solving and consulting, our students can shed light on some of your organisations’s most pressing issues.

Over the years, UCL School of Management has worked in partnership with a wide range of organisations from large corporate companies to start-ups operating in the public, private and third sectors. Check out our student projects with Grantify, an online tool that streamlines the process of applying for government grants, and Centrepoint, a charity dedicated to providing accommodation and support to young people who are experiencing homelessness.
