Postgraduate and MBA Internship Programme

Our Postgraduate and MBA Internship Programme is 8 weeks in duration, part-time and takes place during the summer. Alliteratively students can complete 112 hours in their second semester.

It is an opportunity for companies and organisations to allocate short-term resources to the problems and innovations that they are seeking to address.

About us

The Business Experience Team (BET) brings together education and industry by promoting work-based learning and knowledge sharing. Located in the heart of London, we are a specialist team, working within Westminster Business School, University of Westminster. 

For over 40 years we have been creating strong links with employers and universities within the UK and abroad. We work with local and international organisations to meet their short- and medium-term project needs. 

What can we offer you?

Our motivated, well-educated postgraduate and MBA-level candidates from the UK and overseas, can work on short-term projects within your organisation. In return, our candidates can build on their existing experience and knowledge as well as gaining valuable insights in working practices in the UK.

Through personal consultations we will listen to your organisational and business needs. We understand that every employer and organisation is different, so we will find the most suitable candidates for you.

We will support you at every stage of the process and regularly consult with you to ensure we are providing the quality service you deserve. A BET representative is always on the other end of a phone for advice or support, or you can make an appointment for a more in-depth consultation.

Once a candidate has been chosen, we will keep in regular contact with you throughout the internship to ensure everything is running smoothly.

How can our candidates be of benefit to you?

Our candidates use their previous work experience, knowledge and skills to support and develop your organisation. At Westminster Business School our students undertake the internship at the final stages of their course. They will be able to work comfortably with managers and contribute to either your team projects or individual assignments. They will thrive on the opportunity to work on challenging projects and provide solutions to problems you set.

If you are interested in the CVs of one or more candidates, you have the option of getting a member of our dedicated team to arrange in-person meetings or interviews for you to discuss how their skills can be best used to benefit your organisation – either by developing and delivering project work or through providing much-needed assistance in your offices.
