PESS 2012

  • Are you a Doctoral Researcher looking to enhance your personal and professional development?
  • Do you want to gain enterprise skills which can give you the edge in any career, whether it’s private enterprise, academia or third sector?
  • Do you want the opportunity to gain transferable skills to take your research and future career forward?
  • Would you like to work with a social enterprise on real strategic issues?
The Postgraduate Enterprise Summer School takes Doctoral Researchers through an intensive week of training from Monday 23 July to Friday 27 July 2012. Participants will work together in small teams to solve a real strategy challenge being faced by an influential local organisation.
Alongside the comprehensive programme of interactive professional skills training sessions, participants take part in visiting the organisation; research; guest speaker sessions and developing proposals to address the organisation’s requirements. On the final day each team will present their findings back to a panel of the organisation’s representatives and the winning team will be announced.
The course provides a fantastic opportunity for top quality training alongside the opportunity to work on real strategic issues. No previous experience is required and participants from all subject areas are welcome.
Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
