Faculty Case Studies

Will Peirce and Jonny TeelingBA (Hons) Marketing, 2011

I’d already done business studies at school and college and had found marketing to be the most enjoyable part of it, so when I saw that the University offered the course and after hearing about the city’s reputation I made my decision.

Aisha PothanMA Human Resource Management, 2011

Leeds Business School offered me a dual degree in the same course, enabling me to get a professional (CIPD) and an academic degree together.
