Businesses in the North West came together with Manchester Metropolitan’s Business School to inform the development of one of the university’s most popular courses.
Representatives from companies including IBM, Kelloggs, ECOM Recruitment, Hays, Jacobs and BASF shared their views on how the BA (Hons) Business Management degree can help prepare students for a graduate career in business.
The meeting is part of Manchester Metropolitan’s Employer Advisory Group, which sees the university’s Business School working closely with employers to shape its degree programmes while offering placement and employment opportunities for students.
Joshua Steer, Business Consultant at IBM, said: “It’s great that Manchester Metropolitan are actively listening to employers’ observations and shaping their Business Management course around the feedback we provide.
“This will ensure that their graduates are best prepared with the skills and knowledge needed to gain employment within a highly competitive graduate market.”
