A university education, powered by industry experience.

Pearson Business School has partnered with International Business School to run a Summer School; the Summer School will run from Monday 10th July and end on Friday 28th July. Students from South American countries including Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Bolivia and Mexico will have the chance to learn more about business strategy, innovation, and sustainability. As part of the programme they will also attend talks from leading companies including PwC and Pearson Plc. (Pearson College London's parent organisation), these talks have been designed to provide them with more education around business and to encourage them to evaluate opportunities and challenges. At the end of the three weeks, the students will attend a graduation ceremony and have a chance to take part in some sightseeing around London too.

Will Holt, Dean at Pearson Business School said:

"We are delighted to welcome students from 6 countries to our first summer school. These programmes are a great way to facilitate international collaboration and foster cultural awareness. We hope that this is the first of many summer schools through our partnership with International Business School.”

Jose Cani, Summer School Student said:

"I'm having the experience of a lifetime being a Pearson student! It's a perfect structure, perfect environment and perfect people! Thank You for having accepted me!"

Pearson College London’s mission is to become the UK's leading university for in-depth industry engagement; by working with international institutions the Summer School programme will create more collaborative projects internationally, boost global awareness and help more graduates stand out in a crowded job market.

Pearson Business School 
A university education, powered by industry experience.

We're transforming higher education. As a FTSE 100 company, immersed in industry, we do things differently. Industry engagement is at the core of everything that we do, and it’s what sets us apart.

We offer all full-time degree students guaranteed internships*, so they gain experience during their studies. Our degree apprentices also get to work within a company throughout their studies, so they gain valuable experience, learning on the job. We help our students to build their own professional networks; they’re taught by well-connected industry experts, and they get to make contacts at industry workshops led by some of the world’s most reputable organisations. We work with industry giants from Unilever, L’Oreal, and Sony Pictures, to WPP, Lloyds of London and IBM. Alongside their academic studies, it’s the experiences like these that help our students to develop the knowledge and skills they’ll need to succeed, as well as inspire them, so they have the drive and ambition to get ahead.

Our students are enterprising and entrepreneurial. They get to work with our in-house business incubator The Access Platform (TAP), and many have set up their own companies too, like Kickpush and Yaantu and even social enterprises like Once Upon a Doug.

Our alumni have gone on to work for brands such as Nestle, Sainsbury’s, Microsoft, Dyson, Not on the High Street, the BBC, Snapchat, Wincanton and General Mills.

Industry engagement drives us; it’s not just what we do, it’s who we are. And it is what will take us, and our students, into the future.
