Studying at Pearson Business School

You may have noticed that we’re a little different from traditional universities.

All of our students get access to industry from day one and as well as learning academically, they continue to get CV, LinkedIn and interview tips (to name just a few benefits) throughout their studies to ensure they're employer-ready when they graduate. This might be part of the reason why the average median salary for our Business and Administration graduates is £25,000* - with graduates working in a diverse range of roles.
