The Business of Science Brought to Life!


Three international Newcastle University Business School MBA students have given themselves a big boost in the employability market by winning a three month internship with Newcastle Science City.   

They will be working as part of the Newcastle Innovation Machine - a unique project with an objective to create economic prosperity from science, by identifying which new scientific ideas can be turned into viable new businesses. They will prepare business plans, undertake market research and will be part of the evaluation process in determining which ideas should progress from inception to business start up.  

This critical role will allow the students to put into practice the knowledge and skills that they have learnt whilst undertaking their MBA's, at Newcastle University Business School.  

The students will be jointly supervised through their internships by the Newcastle Science City core team and Dr Lucy Lu, MBA Programme Director. 

The MBA from Newcastle University Business School is a 'post-experience' programme, suitable for those with a significant degree of management work experience and who are seeking to develop their career into more senior positions. It is delivered as either a 12 month intensive programme of study or a 2 year part time study programme for senior managers with full time jobs.
