The Masters Research Dissertation Programme offers an exciting opportunity to link students on Masters courses and their university supervisors with leading retail companies on projects which are important to the retail industry. The scheme provides the opportunity to work directly with an industrial partner and to link students’ research to important retail and ‘open data’ sources. The project titles are devised by retailers and are open to students from a wide range of disciplines.
The 2017 programme is now closed. Please visit this page again in January for dissertation opportunities available in 2018.
