Student Business led clinic

Student Business led clinic

Working closely with our team of academic staff from Liverpool Business School, students from both our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes work in consultancy project teams to tackle real problems brought to them by businesses, our clients. Our students can provide research and genuine innovative and fresh approach solutions to all types of problems and challenges.

Last year the Business Clinic saw over 180 students provide a service to over 45 organisations (public, private and third sector) across the region and beyond. This yeqar we are looking to support over 100;

The business clinic consultancy project is now embedded into a range of programme across the business school:

Accounting, Business Management, Events Management, Human Resource Management, Marketing, Public Relations, Sport Business and Tourism Management.

At Liverpool Business School we are proud to provide a first-rate teaching and learning environment backed by research and scholarship which is central to the School ethos, as is delivering practical business solutions to local, national and international businesses.

How it works

We’ll start with an initial conversation and come together to outline and agree a consultancy brief. We will discuss with you project length and dates in the first instance to ensure feasibility and expectations.

We will then match you with a student consultancy team (made up of undergraduate and masters students) who will work with you to identify solutions to the specific challenges faced by your business.

You can expect your student consultancy team to contact you initially via email, after which you will both outline and agree how best to communicate over the course of the project. For example, this could be through weekly email reports, video calls, video presentations or possibly face-to-face meetings (as Covid-19 government guidelines allow).

In addition to the project brief it will be expected that you are able to provide students with information and support that they need to fulfil the brief. The student consultancy teams will make their final recommendations in form of report or other means, as agreed at the start of the project.

A level of confidentiality and commercial sensitivity will be established on a case-by-case situation and appropriate measures will be put in place if required.  The module team from Liverpool Business School will support the student consultancy teams and individuals, providing appropriate guidance - through regular workshops and supervision, providing feedback when necessary. Bottom of Form
