Pearson Business School and International Business School Americas joint Summer School 2019

The Summer School will include industry engagement sessions with industry partners including Inmarsat, Avios, EY and Nationwide.

The 2019 Summer School will run from Monday 8th July and end on Friday 26th July. The programme is aimed at undergraduates studying business or other related topics and will be taught by leading tutors. The sessions are designed to give students a unique insight into business strategy - they will explore three subjects that are focused on recent views. The course has been designed to help students develop the critical and creative spirit needed to lead strategy and managerial change.

This year the International Business School has two cohorts, one will focus on Contemporary Topics in Business Strategy (CTBS) and the other will focus on Advanced Topics in Business Management (ATBM).

CTBS Students modules will include:

  • Sustainability and Business Strategy 
  • New Tools and Concepts on Strategic Thinking 
  • Strategic Innovation Management 

ATBM Students modules will include

  • Advanced Finance
  • International Law
  • Advanced Strategy 
  • Advanced Risk Management

Alongside their studies, students will attend two industry events, one on-site and one off-site. This July our CTBS students will be attending talks from Inmarsat and Avios; our advanced students will also be attending presentations from EY and Nationwide.

At the end of the three weeks, students will attend a graduation ceremony and receive a certificate as well as a souvenir from Pearson Business School.

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.
