Employability

The School’s Business Life Employability Programme is designed to help students to acquire a range of employability and networking skills, enabling them to gain a distinct edge in the labour market and to manage their career search and development more effectively. Typical events have included:

  • Meet the Professionals Showcase
    A professional association is an organisation formed to unite and inform people who work in the same occupation. There are many advantages to joining professional bodies: typically they offer training and access to research, as well as networking opportunities like conferences and forums. Brunel Business School regularly invites key professional bodies to showcase these benefits to Business School students on campus. Professional bodies who regularly take part in the showcase include: ACCA, ICAEW, CIPFA, CIMA, BCS, OR, CMI, CILT, CIPD, CII, CBI, CFA, CIM and CIPR.

UK Industrial and Commercial Visits

Where possible, events and external visits are arranged with UK organisations to help demonstrate theory in practice. Typical events have included:

  • Tour of the Mini Car Plant, Oxford
    MSc in Management students joined MSc Supply Chain Management students in 2012 on a visit to BMW’s Mini car plant in Oxford. The visit involved a guided tour around the Mini production line which was in full operation during the visit. Students witnessed in practice many of the management topics covered in their degree including international business strategy, new product development, customer focused marketing, operations and supply chain management, and financial resources management.
  • CV Writing for Master's Students Supply Chain Management is growing in importance as a management discipline and we are confident that graduates of this programme will improve their employability in this area as a result of completing this double-accredited specialist programme.


Graduate School Workshops
