MBN Academy is the part of the MBN Solutions business model dedicated to acting as ‘the bridge’ between academia and commercial organisations in the Technology, Digital and Data spaces. Recognising the need for a function of this type, we have developed strong relationships with a variety of Universities and Academic Institutions throughout the country.

We showcase careers within the markets that we operate in, act as a liaison partner to introduce other businesses into the academic space, develop Employability skills within student cohorts through our #MBNSkills program, and champion the success that collaborations of this type can bring in projects.

The MSc. Placement Project is a collaborative effort between Scottish Universities, Scottish Organisations, MBN and The Data Lab, with the aim of developing the next generation of Data Science talent and skills required by industry in Scotland. The Placement Project allows Students the opportunity to complete a paid three month industrial placement for their dissertation project. Through these projects, students get the chance to apply their learnt skills to real life problems and get familiar with business life.

For 2018/19, The Data Lab student intake has increased to 155. This development highlights the growing demand to deliver the best of the best data skills into private and public sector businesses throughout Scotland.
