Strong links with companies such as Haymarket, Marks and Spencer, Santander and Waitrose.

Globalisation of the world economy, increases in world trade, the growth of the European Union and industrialisation of China, India and Russia all mean that there is increasing demand for graduates who can operate in international context.
