Brunel Business School was one of the first business schools in the UK to introduce postgraduate placements for Master's students back in 2011.
Placements are becoming more popular among more mature student as they serve as a springboard into what is an extremely competitive jobs market. Postgraduate work placement employers cover all related expenses and may also provide a salary.
It's up to you to secure your work placement, however, we see placements as an integral part of our courses, so our academic staff plus the Professional Development Centre will provide you with all the support you need.
Just some of the organisations who have previously offered placements include:
- Heathrow Airport
- Telefónica Europe
- Radley Yeldar
- Jim Northover Limited
- Network Rail
- Right Management
- Tata Beverages
- Tetley Tea
- Grant Thornton
- Coats plc
- Better Lettings
If you're applying for a work visa, scholarship or government funding, and think you would like to do a placement, it's always best to apply for the longer programme length with placement from the outset.
