Marketing Applied Extended Project (AEP)
This is an in-curriculum opportunity for MSc Marketing students.
MSc Marketing students are given the opportunity to put into practice what they’ve learned throughout the programme by undertaking a research project around a current marketing issue for an external organisation.
The AEP is an alternative to a traditional dissertation which allows you to conduct a primary research project that is both grounded in academic literature and also serves the needs of a partner organisation. It is therefore ‘applied’ academic research. You will be able to make recommendations to the partner organisation based on your research findings. You will be able to shape your project, but they have provided the initial brief.
The benefits of choosing to do an AEP:
- An applied project can provide opportunities for working in different aspects of marketing and create a tangible ‘selling point’ for your CV.
- It can help you to network and raise your profile within the partner organization.
- It can lead to your new career, either directly, or indirectly.
- It can provide opportunities for enhancing employability skills such as conducting business meetings, writing business reports, presentation skills and professionalism within a workplace environment.
