MBA Consulting Project: Strategic Market Analysis
Julian Budden (MBA student) (L) is congratulated by Matt Larwood, Axios IT General Manager
As part of his MBA studies, Julian completed a strategic market analysis of Axios IT's business. Matt Larwood, General Manager of Axios IT said "it made us question where we stood on positioning and marketing generally. Talking about the company makes you re-appraise what you deliver and the underlying benefit. Julian looked with fresh eyes, challenging our assumptions."
Julian commented "One of the great benefits of working on a real project like this is that you work unconstrained. You get a chance to use your initiative, determine your own approach and apply what you've learned to deliver a real commercial benefit."
