Notably, this endeavour establishes an alliance between forward-looking companies and the university talent – Master’s students who possess state-of-the-art knowledge in this quickly changing field. Within this dynamic partnership, talented students embark on projects thoughtfully tailored to tackle the specific challenges that each business faces and that fit students’ experience and education. The endgame? Boosting business value across the board.
