Partners and Recruiters

Birmingham Business School prides itself on its links with industry. We want to ensure that our research continues to inform the development of business practice and we want to facilitate companies to recruit our graduates into projects and permanent positions throughout the world.

To achieve this we need to hear from you. Our research can underpin your five year strategy, our graduates can provide fresh talent, and our pool of MBA professionals can provide you with managerial expertise and high value consultancy.

Business engagement

We encourage your business to engage with our academics to gain access to their knowledge and expertise. We have an open door policy, so there is a large degree of flexibility about how we can work together, from conducting research projects that last for a few months or several years, to providing consultancy, or testing and analysing methods and equipment. You could also have an academic come to work within your business for a set period of time on a secondment in order to have access to their experitise on-site.
