Pearson Business School

At Pearson Business School, we do things differently – we’re part of the only FTSE 100 company offering degrees in the UK, and that means we immerse our students in real business from day one. Industry engagement is at the core of everything that we do, and it’s what sets us apart from other institutions.

We work with a range of industry partners, from global industry giants in the private sector such as Direct Line, L’Oréal, and Kantar Consulting; high-quality small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) such as Magnet.Me and GetGeared; and world-leading public sector organisations such as TfL and London Sport. Our partners are at the very centre of what we do, involving themselves in everything from the overall concept of the degree, to the programme design, learning materials and student experience – with industry events and professional work experience being an integral part of the programme. Our partners input into the college means out graduates will be best equipped to excel in today’s world of work, with skills and qualities needed for a long term and successful career.

Some of our industry partners

Why partner with us?

Internships

Our career focused degrees mean we can offer you people who can really add value to your organisation. Internships last an average of 6 weeks, giving students a real taste of what it is like in a professional working environment. Not only will you be helping develop current talent but you will be uncovering future employees for your business.

Talent development opportunities

We encourage industry partners to get involved through speaking opportunities, industry events, training and mentoring. Not only is this beneficial for the students, but it provides talent development opportunities for your own staff too and the chance to scout upcoming talent.

Challenges and projects

Industry partners have the opportunity to set industry challenges and get feedback on live projects, this can be incredibly valuable to companies as it will give you the chance to gain real consumer insights, helping your market research. Students recently took part in a Vodafone challenge!

Graduate recruitment

One of the greatest benefits for employers, is access to our best and brightest graduates. The combination of work and study provides a pool of career ready graduates who will give you an excellent return on investment.  You can recruit people directly or we can help you find the right Pearson Business School graduates.

Future curriculum development

Industry partners have the opportunity to get involved in degree design, module development and delivery, we have worked with Lloyd’s of London, Unilever, IBM and WPP to shape our degrees ensuring they are relevant - relevant to students, relevant to employers and relevant to industry.

Industry conferences

Industry partners are invited to deliver student conferences,  workshops and Q&A sessions. It's a great opportunity to showcase your company to upcoming talent, plus it's a chance to gain access to a younger demographic and get real consumer insights. Last year we welcomed Microsoft, Asos Ventures and Ford to name a few!

Having the opportunity to share with up and coming leaders in business has been a real privilege for us. We’ve been able to plant a seed in the minds of future leaders studying at Pearson College London, to think very differently about how business will be run, and how business will be contributing to the challenges and opportunities the world faces.

Geoff McDonald, Ex-Global Vice President HR, Unilever

We’ve done a number of things, including Dragon’s Den Days and internships and the quality of students at Pearson College London is really very striking!
