Oxford Brookes has teamed up with the Entrepreneurship Practice and Innovation Centre at the Odette School of Business, University of Windsor, Canada, to offer an exciting and unique exchange study project.

Last week, the ‘Bio-to-Business’ project brought together students from Oxford Brookes’ Department of Biological and Medical Sciences and a team of students from the Odette Business School.

The day involved student presentations, a guest talk by Brookes alumnus sponsor Graham Defries, and a workshop centred on real-life projects provided by staff members. Students worked in small groups, with the Canadian business students acting as business consultants. 

The project provided a fantastic opportunity for students to develop their employability skills and gain business know-how.
