Harley Davidson

Students on the Strategic Financial Decisions module of our BSc in Accounting and Finance experienced two exciting interactions with Harley-Davidson recently.
Last month Harley-Davidson representatives, Christian Williams, District Manager South, and Helen Gadbury from the local Harley dealership, Riders of Bristol, visited campus to provide a guest lecture on strategy.
This was followed up earlier this month by a visit to Riders of Bristol to meet the staff and see the products.
Deb Lewis, unit convenor said:

“Both events provided a great opportunity for the students to ask lots of questions about the company and learn more about the real world operations of an international company. 

Both the Harley Davison reps who came to visit us on campus and the team at Riders of Bristol were fantastic; thank you to them for their encouragement and support.”
BSc Accounting and Finance course representative, Danish Ali Khan, said

“The trip was beneficial in helping us to understand how different aspects of a business work together and the roles of different departments to help achieve strategic aims and represent a brand.”
