Frame project scope and assign student teams

A project is a multi-week (typically 6-10 weeks) initiative students undertake to solve a specific business problem, in collaboration with a student team. A project is typically defined and managed on the basis of a pre-agreed objective, scope, deliverables and timeline. Select examples include a) developing business case for a retailer to launch a new clothing line, b) estimating the size of energy drink market in the UK, and c) developing a new video to support recruitment programs.
We recommend that the scope, timeline and deliverables of the projects posted on ProjectSet are achievable for an off-site team of 3-5 students working part-time (typically spending 20-30% of their time during term-time) over a 3-6 month period. We found the following 3 categories of projects to be most effective for student communities:
These projects often focus on exploratory groundwork to address an opportunity or a problem and help the Client assess the case to build on it by deploying more substantial and experienced resources.
We do not “match�? students to projects but enable students and employers to find each other. We encourage students to apply to projects that match their skills and interest and employers to select applicants whose profiles are appropriate for the project. In select cases, employers may choose to interview an applicant before making a selection.
ProjectSet offers all employers and their project teams free access to:
In addition, ProjectSet offers employers the option to engage a ProjectMentor to guide and steer the student team. ProjectMentors are experienced professionals (e.g. ex-McKinsey/ Bain/ BCG strategy consultant) with substantial experience in project leadership. ProjectMentors help employers get better and faster results with significantly less time commitment.
ProjectSet encourages all employers to offer remuneration to interns as part of their remote project work. However, we work with employers of all sizes and recognise that this is not always possible. As such, this is not currently a requirement of using the platform.
