Business Research & Consulting (BR&C) enables you to apply theory and knowledge to practical business matters. The course consists of a research and consultancy project for external businesses by a team of three to four students from various levels and programmes, supervised by a FEB lecturer. For ten weeks you and your team will visit an organisation, investigate their managerial issue and develop and execute a research plan. In the end you will present your findings and possible solutions to the management of the organisation. BR&C is focused on reflecting on actual situations and analytically supporting the advice you offer a client.


'The main skill I developed during this course was to translate my academic knowledge to business practice.'

Gerben Wiersema, student Small Business & Entrepreneurship
