Faculty Case Studies

Alan KingBA (Hons) in Business Studies, 2001

I wanted a course which had a placement year with a real company. The BA in Business Studies at Leeds Beckett provided the right combination of vocational versus theoretical experience and teaching.

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.
