  • Sharpen their knowledge and concepts through real-world application
  • Strengthen their employability credentials
  • Connect with exciting companies and future employers.
  • Leading brands and academics have endorsed ProjectBay and we are currently working with them to shape new, exciting projects. Last week, we opened the platform to sign up students who wish to pursue such consulting opportunities.
