University of Derby students visit Millitec

University of Derby Visit Millitec

Over the past couple of weeks, Millitec and The University of Derby have been planning for some students to take part in a new assignment to develop Millitec as a business. Each student had to give justification for choosing Millitec as their company to improve or research on. On Wednesday 24th November 2021, several students from Business Management Programme, attended a tour and presentation at Millitec. We were delighted to welcome them and show the company, how it works, its challenges, etc. With this information, the students are then able to produce a detailed assignment on Millitec and combine their own research to create a business plan.
Combining the University and Millitec will allow the students to have real work experience and expand their knowledge of the business.

“Thank you, Millitec Food Systems Ltd., for the warm welcome to the site. We are really grateful for providing our University of Derby, Business Management final year students (undertaking Business Consultancy Project module) real-life projects to work on and gain invaluable experience. The short lectures provided by several managers regarding their vision, mission, values, customers, competitors, processes, design, marketing practices, future plans etc. were very insightful. Our students not only got the chance to learn more about the company, discuss about potential projects and ask questions but also got to see the site where the work is being held.” – Dr Tabassum, Lecturer at The University of Derby.

We look forward to the new year where the students will be returning to Millitec, with their ideas and thoughts on the business. The information they provide will be considered in the new business plan, to allow Millitec to grow and improve in the future.
