Students pitch their ideas to 15 businesses at the Collaborative Project Trade Fair

On Tuesday 13th December, over 400 students presented their business solutions to various organisations as part of their final assessment for the Collaborative Project module.

The Collaborative Project Trade Fair marked the final assessment for over 400 students who studied the Collaborative Project module as part of their postgraduate taught programme at Loughborough University London.

The module brought together students from across the campus to solve a real business or social problem, provided by one of 15 partner organisations. Each team worked closely with their partner organisation for the duration of the module, before pitching their innovative and creative solutions at the Collaborative Project Trade Fair.

This exciting module enables students to develop their knowledge through experiential learning, by asking students from a range of disciplines to work collaboratively with one another, and with a partner organisation.

The Collaborative Project is a great demonstration of organisations and Universities working together to create innovative and creative solutions to modern challenges. It's opportunities like this that enable students to experience real-life strategic planning, and develop their commercial awareness, communication and team-working skills
