Faculty Case Studies

Alexa MortonCIM Certificate in Marketing, 2010

The best thing was the ability to study for a postgraduate course part-time, so that I could continue to work full-time.

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.
