Our Corporate Partners

Our corporate partners are extremely diverse in terms of their sector of activity, their culture, their size and their reasons for being a part of the Master of Management program. Our Corporate Partners are invited to be active on all fronts within the program: from their active contribution to the strategic goals and management of the program to contributing to the students? learning experience in the classroom to welcoming our graduates and alumni as new recruits in their organisations. The relationships with our Corporate Partners are highly valued and is a long term commitment where we seek to maximise the benefits for both students and our corporate stakeholders.

Our Corporate Partners may participate in the Masters of Management program in a number of ways including (but not limited to):

  • skills seminars
  • involvement in student selection
  • business projects
  • participation at networking events
  • guest lecture & curriculum development in specific units of study

Skills seminars

Typically one-day (min. half-day or max. 2-day) interactive training seminars help students develop skills relevant to management life. Corporate partners design and deliver the seminar content in cooperation with the Master of Management Academic Director.

Business projects

Master of Management students work on a consultancy-like project on a real life business problem. The university appoints an academic advisor to support and coordinate the students. In return, companies will be presented with the results of the study and concrete solutions on the problem they raised, while having the opportunity of scouting emerging talent for potential hiring.

Student selection

All Masters of Management student are required to attend at least one interview and provide a statement of motivation. This provides the Academic Director and our corporate partners with the opportunity to assess the students and admit the very best possible candidates.

Networking events

The Management Education Office runs an extensive annual program of networking events designed to encourage students and corporate partners to exchange ideas and viewpoints.Corporate partners also have the opportunity to provide a guest speaker is they wish. Typically, networking events are held outside business hours and feature a relevant business theme.

Guest lecture & curriculum development

The Masters of Management program is designed to develop our students' business skills, so we welcome the opportunity to work with our corporate partners to ensure we are delivering graduates that can work across global industries. We want to hear from our corporate partners and deliver the graduates they want.
