“Guy’s & St. Thomas’ Hospital are among the UK's busiest and most successful foundation trusts, with a long history of clinical excellence and high quality care. In 2015 we established the Management Training Scheme, a two-year leadership programme designed to develop future leaders of the NHS. Beside lots of on the job training, and integral part of the scheme is the educational component which provides trainees with the opportunity to apply theory to practice.  With a fantastic pedigree in learning and education the decision to partner with Pearson College London to deliver the scheme’s educational component was an easy one to make. The SLMDA is a fantastic postgraduate programme which will stretch and challenge our trainees and prepare them for senior healthcare leadership roles”

About Pearson Business School

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’Oréal, 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, 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 Nestlé, 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.
