Professional Placement Opportunities and Access to Local Graduate Talent
Roehampton Business School develops business ready graduates, equipped with the knowledge and critical insight to make informed decisions, solve business problems ethically and become the kind of graduates who can add value to your organisation and wider society.
At the heart of our business ready approach sits a range of extra-curricular activities which provide our students with practical business experience to complement their university studies. We are always looking to develop partnerships with SMEs and larger organisations within London and the south east who can offer professional placements to our students. These placements could fall into a wide range of roles including human resources, marketing, accounting or project management.
