Services for Business
The University works with in excess of 5,000 business, regionally, nationally and internationally. Our courses are informed by Industry Advisory Boards, where information about business needs are reviewed and skills challenges are discussed.
We work extensively across sectors, providing detailed intelligence and input into future innovation, driving thinking around smart specialisation, the creative economy, advanced manufacturing and health-related life sciences, through our work with the GBSLEP, Science City, Creative City Partnership and through Europe, leading on cross innovation, design and climate change. Innovation is at the core of our work. Working in partnership is at the core of our approach to business.
If you are seeking to grow your business, our experts, students and graduates are on hand through a range of tailored programmes. If you want to change the way your business works, our knowledge exchange programmes, which give access to graduate talent and academic expertise, may be of interest.
Current management needs can be addressed through our successful bespoke training and development, while increased graduate employability is being secured through our innovative postgraduate study programmes.
Backing all of this with cutting-edge technologies and leading facilities, we are confident that what may begin as a small intervention will grow into a mutually beneficial long-standing relationship.
