Research and consultancy

At Surrey Business School, we can connect your business with a wide range of academic expertise and specialist knowledge. Our research and consultancy can fill any gaps in your in-house resources, giving you access to the latest ideas and business solutions.


Depending on the nature of your project, we can connect you with an expert or small team who will work with you to scope and agree a brief.

If you’d like to find out more about bespoke consultancy please contact Abi Bradbeer.

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs)

Ideal for longer-term projects where you’d like our support with implementation as well as research.

Our Research and Enterprise Support team can work with you to develop a KTP proposal.

Action learning consultancy

Our MBA students undertake group consultancy projects as part of their learning. Working on real business issues, the teams offer free consultancy and advice with the support of leading academics.

To work with our MBA students, please contact Siobhan Neveling, our MBA Coordinator.


We facilitate ideation sessions and ‘hackathons’, connecting leading thinkers, students and customers with your business to explore specific issues or experiment with new solutions.

If you would like us to set up an ideation session for you, please get in touch with Abi Bradbeer.
