In the Future MBA students will be paired with local businesses.  The businesses themselves, which could be the corner store, a local pub, an artist, a hotel, a day care centre, a small business owner or a community group for example, would apply to be part of the programme. Students would be paired with one of these businesses and would spend some time within the business during the school year, learning more about how it operates but also providing advice and help as and when needed.  A series of events will also take place on campus to facilitate the interaction of the students with theirs and other student’s adopted businesses.
