Are you an out of the box thinker who can see opportunities where others can’t? 

You will have the opportunity to work with your client to:

  • Undertake an overview of the current state of their industry. 
  • Provide insights on how your client’s customers’ needs and habits are changing. 
  • Review of how their competitors are responding to these changes. 
  • Identify trends and opportunities that may help them overcome current challenges and grow the organisation.

Designed in partnership with Practera, the Growth Strategy Project offers you the opportunity to work on a two week real-world business project that looks at the impact of an ever-changing world.

The Growth Strategy Project will connect you and your team with real clients to complete a research and insights report. You’ll analyse the business, research customer needs and behaviour, and identify growth opportunities.
