Direct Line Group

Launched in 1985, Direct Line Group was the UK’s first telephone insurer. Today, Direct Line Group is home to some of the UK’s best known brands and continues to lead the way in selling insurance direct to consumers.

Our Pearson Business School students have attended exclusive Direct Line industry workshops and have been offered the opportunity to gain real-world experience on an 8-week internship too.

Pearson Business School is extremely pleased to partner with the Direct Line Group (DLG). The work we do with the DLG is fully embedded in our degree programmes and has the outcomes that we are building with all our industry partners. DLG supported us with the design of some of the modules in our business degrees and continues to support us by delivering workshops, hackathons, internships and apprenticeship programmes. We are part of the pipeline to create the next generation of successful leaders for this organisation. Because we work so closely together we understand their needs and they get to know our exceptional students.
