Marketors' Mentoring Programme

In partnership with The Worshipful Company of Marketors, the School of Business and Management has launched the Marketors’ Mentoring Programme. The scheme provides an opportunity for students to get a step ahead as they prepare to embark on their marketing career journey. It provides a high-quality confidential mentoring service to SBM students, to improve their employability skills and support them during their job search process.

The Changemaker Internship

For Business and Management students struggling to find internships, this scheme has been introduced to help them along the way. Participants in the programme have the opportunity to take action and be involved in the decision-making process within the School. They work with academics, administrative staff, and external partners to shape a brighter future for all business and management students.

They have several responsibilities, among them, conducting research and doing analysis, collaborating with the School stakeholders to search for solutions and promote new ideas, sharing and developing projects and data collection for analyses etc.

Final year student ‘Celebration of Success’ event

This year, we are celebrating the great success and progress of our final-year students in Spring Term.

The event is supported by our Dean and Vice Deans. During the event, five certificates and Amazon vouchers will be awarded to five final-year students who displayed our 5 SBM values: intellectual curiosity, collegiality and mutual respect, integrity, diversity and inclusivity, and empowerment throughout their journeys.

The personal tutors, previous students, and practitioners attended the event to provide advice and valuable insights to the existing students approaching their new chapter.

Open door approach

Listening to student voice is a primary priority for the School so every Friday from 3pm-5pm, students are invited to have a chat with the Vice-Dean for Education & Student Experience in the School of Business and Management, Dr. Lucy Gill-Simmen. No appointment is required, anyone can just drop in at McCrea First Floor 2-46 for any question, comment, recommendation and/or inquiry.
