The Business School already has strong links with CMI through the opportunity for students to gain additional professional qualifications alongside their academic awards at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. This dual accreditation strengthens the link between theoretical knowledge and practical application. CMI host networking and guest speaker events throughout the year offering the opportunity for students, management professionals and organisations to learn and collaborate.

Helen also took the opportunity to award prizes to a team of four Business Management BA(Hons) students for ‘Best Poster’ in the ‘21st Century Leader’ competition through which students present their ideas on the skills and attributes needed to be a successful business leader (above image).

In an increasingly competitive higher education market, it’s crucial that universities stand out from the competition and offer something extra to help them recruit more learners, provide more value, and deepen engagement with them.
