Students and employers discussing opportunities

Earlier this month, our MBAs welcomed a number of organisations to campus. They came to discuss group project opportunities and start exploring internships for later in the year.

The Bath MBA prides itself on being an 'experiential' programme. We offer students opportunities to apply their learning to real-life situations throughout the programme. Students do five projects during their MBA; up to three of these are consultancy projects for organisations.

Mutually beneficial relationships

Our MBA students can also take an internship at the end of the degree. While they start the programme with work experience, the internship can provide a taste of a new career path.

Internships also give employers the chance to 'road test' an MBA graduate and see if they are a good fit for their company.

Laura Janes from Uniquity commented on Twitter:

It was a great event - really well run and great to see your fabulous new building. The intern and project candidates from the Bath MBA were of a great calibre and very well prepared.

Face to face with local and international businesses

A range of organisations, from start-ups to global names, came to meet our MBAs. These included:

Harikrishnan Pillai, Senior Operations Consultant for Zenith Global, said:

The Bath MBA attracts a great mix of students from a wide range of backgrounds and nationalities, and the evening provided a rare opportunity to meet such a diverse group.

It was great to know that Zenith generated a high level of interest. A career in consultancy continues to be among the top choices for MBA students.

Students commented that there was 'a great vibe and productive format for meeting potential project leads' and that the best part was 'face to face chat with local and international businesses'.

Work with our top students

Our students can bring genuine benefit to your company. They are experienced, have specialist knowledge and are ready to deliver quality work. Offering placements can also give you a valuable link to graduate recruitment.
