Consumer Data Research Centre

Masters Research Dissertation Programme

Projects for the Masters Research Dissertation Programme 2018 are now live and listed below! We receive a large volume of interest therefore urge students to get their applications in early. For all enquiries, email projects@cdrc.ac.uk.

The 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.
