We have a bustling business department with lots of expertise. All our business courses cross over, with some modules being shared across the degrees. We believe in breaking down barriers and giving our students every opportunity to expand their network while with us. With smaller, more intimate class sizes, we give our students one-to-one teaching and around-the-clock support.
Being so close to London gives us some amazing industry links, giving you the chance to gain experience in the real world. Our focus on real life experience gives you that competitive edge when heading into employment.
Our focus on recreating the industry on campus gives a boost to your employability. Some of the companies we have worked with include Initials, Jargon PR, Medico, Mindshare, Primal, Scannappeal and Simpler PR.
We have a strong practical element to our business courses with live briefs that our friends in the industry trust our students with. We’ve had students consulting major companies and helping start ups to get their businesses on the move.
Our lecturers have extensive industry and academic experience. They’ll help you mix theory with practice, informing your teaching with their knowledge. We attract many guest speakers, including former students who share their business acumen. We make sure that you’ll always know about the latest trends in the world of business.
