Frank Ludwig, Director of Manufacturing at Rolls-Royce, recently addressed over 300 students from across the School of Management and Faculty of Engineering and Design in a talk on the history of Rolls-Royce.

He was joined by University of Bath alumni who have started careers with BMW, and members of the Talent Recruitment team, who highlighted placement and recruitment opportunities within the BMW Group.

A Rolls-Royce, BMW electrically powered i8 and a John Cooper Works MINI were also on display, with twelve lucky students winning the opportunity to be chauffeur-driven around campus in the Rolls-Royce.

The event took place as part of the ongoing Corporate Partnership between BMW and the School of Management.

Stephen Rangecroft, Director of Marketing and External Relations for the School of Management, commented:

We are working closely with BMW Group to raise awareness of their brand on campus and to create events for students to experience their product innovation and to learn more about future career opportunities and placements
