WBS CareersPlus service
We offer you a comprehensive pre-arrival, student, and alumni careers service. You will have access to one-to-one career guidance appointments, CV checks and tailored mock interviews.
Distinguished Practitioner seminars
We host presentations from senior marketing and strategy practitioners offering an insight into contemporary issues and practice. Some of these companies offer employment or consultancy project opportunities and the networking contacts are invaluable. Recent participating organisations include: Accenture, BT, Experian, Millward Brown, Nestlé, Pentland and Rolls-Royce.
Marketing Insight Series
The Marketing Insight Series aims to bridge the gap between academia and industry, giving a varied insight into the world of marketing, and marketing careers. Top industry speakers, skills workshops, and student challenges all help you to gain the tools you need to become the marketing leaders of the future.
Workshops & guidance
You will have the opportunity to attend workshops covering CVs and application forms, looking for jobs, networking, interviews and assessment centres in Term 1, and access to a careers coach with specialist knowledge of your course.
Additional workshops including networking, CVs and cover letters and assessment centres, are also provided throughout the year.
The University's graduate job site, MyAdvantage lists thousands of graduate job placements and internship opportunities throughout the year, as well as a range of other useful online resources.
As part of your dissertation project, as an MSc Marketing & Strategy student you have the option of conducting an external consultancy project. Consultancy projects offer you the opportunity to work on a real business problem, apply the theory you've learned in practice, and result in your dissertation and a company report for your client. The WBS CareersPlus and Corporate Relations team can support you in securing a project, or guide you on how to find your own in your chosen industry or organisation.
