You may have heard us talking about being part of the only FTSE 100 company in the UK delivering degrees - but do you know what it means?

The Financial Times Stock Exchange (FTSE) 100 is an index that measures the performance of the shares of the 100 largest companies listed on the London Stock Exchange.

These companies have the highest market capitalisation, meaning that they have more assets, capital and higher revenue than most. Many of these companies are known as ‘blue chip’ meaning that they are nationally recognised, well established and financially superior. Some of these FTSE 100 companies include the likes of Tescos, Unilever and Royal Mail (among many more).

It’s important to be a FTSE 100 company as it shows the confidence that investors have in your business. It also highlights how well the business is performing nationally and internationally.

Why does that matter to me?

You could get the opportunity to study business from within a business - as well as inside the only FTSE 100 offering undergraduate degrees. The College itself is based within Pearson offices, so you really do get to experience the industry from day one.
