Placements

Our placement students offer fresh thinking

Our placement students are overflowing with ideas. They're highly educated, professional individuals – the business leaders of tomorrow.

When it comes to work-based placements, we’re experts. We have the largest number of students enrolled on courses offering a placement year in Great Britain. Our placement support team helps you recruit the right student and provides support and guidance throughout.

A student can join your organisation as an extremely cost-effective, full-time employee. Placements are a part of a student's course and tend to take place after their second year. They'll join you for up to 12 months, starting between May and September.

Is a placement for you?

A placement could be ideal if you

  • need to extend your team without committing to permanent contracts
  • are struggling to resource a specialist project
  • need an injection of fresh ideas
  • want to start managing your company’s talent pipeline

And you can

  • offer students a range of new experiences and challenges
  • enhance their knowledge of business practice
  • reinforce the content of their academic study
  • offer a salary of at least £12,000 pro rata

If your organisation has a project or work experience opportunity that demands more strategic attention, our experienced MBA students can provide specialist knowledge and expertise.
