Work experience with great businesses

You'll learn what it means to be data-driven

Data is the oil that helps businesses run – in fact, they can’t make good decisions without it. Dive into the world of data and learn how to use software to create and analyse reports.

You'll get to know about the power of marketing

Every business that needs to reach customers and sell its products needs sales and marketing. Learn how to use data to create campaigns that meet customers needs and get to know the channels you can use to reach them.

Working in teams will help you to grow

A diverse team is a happy team – and happy teams are successful. Understand the importance of working with people from all walks of life and learn how teams can keep growing and adapting to change.

Understand the fundamentals of finance

Understanding the essentials of finance and managing risk will help you stand out from the crowd. Don’t worry about having any previous accounting knowledge because we’ll cover all the basics. 

You'll get to work on a real life project

Thanks to new technology, the way teams work together is constantly changing. Learn how to successfully manage teams of people while working on a real-world business project in groups.

You'll be mentored by business professionals

In addition to the course modules, we're there to support you to develop a great CV, take part in virtual site visits, attend talks from top execs, practise interviews and access job opportunities.
