So you’ve applied, been given an offer, and now it’s time to choose your firm (top choice) and insurance (second option) choice for where you’d like to study from September. Here are just 10 of the many reasons why you should choose Pearson Business School as your firm choice:
1. Industry connections
Everything we do at Pearson Business School is connected to industry. From Industry Days, to our in-house Business Incubator Hub, Guaranteed Internships and Student Conferences, we make sure that you gain real world experience to complement your academic studies. One of the ways we are able to do this is through our strong connections with our Industry Partners (such as Unilever, Royal Mail, IBM and many more) who enable students to gain an understanding of both multinational corporations and small start-up SME’s.
2. Student Conferences
We host impressive Student Conferences all year round, to give our students the chance to explore real issues within business and go behind the scenes to find out how some of their favourite brands operate. Take a look at what our current students got up to in some of our recent events, including the Boots Industry Day, Vodafone Challenge and the Microsoft Conference.
3. We’re unique - be a part of the only FTSE 100 company offering degrees
Pearson College London is a part of Pearson Plc, a FTSE 100 company. You’ll have the unique opportunity to study business at the heart of a thriving and global corporation; this not only gives students a great connection to industry, you’ll also benefit from access to an extensive online library (so no hidden textbook fees!).
4. Guaranteed Internships*
We believe that academic studies should be paired with real experience, which is why we offer Guaranteed Internship opportunities* that will usually take place in the summer of your second year. Students have previously interned at Bloomberg, L’Oreal, Saatchi and Saatchi, and many more.
*Subject to eligibility requirements
5. Be taught by our expert tutors
All of our tutors have an impressive background in industry, meaning they can bring their experience to seminar classes to tell students what Business is really like. Did you know that Simon Hall is the former Chief Marketing Officer of Dell UK? Or that Laura Marshall used to work for PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) in their London Top Tier Division? Or even that Di MacDonald founded her own company, LIKE LITERALLY? Make Pearson Business School your firm choice, to find out what it’s like to be taught by the experts.
6. Small class sizes
In order to maximise your learning, we keep our seminar classes no larger than 20 students, and our lectures no bigger than 100. At Pearson Business School, you’re not just a number but an individual with the chance to make the most from your degree.
7. Support from Personal Tutors
From day one, all students are assigned a Personal Tutor. During each academic term, students are provided with a personal feedback review to evaluate academic progression, problems that may have occurred and future career aspirations. This is a great way for students to improve their grades and also help them to gain advice on which pathways to take after university, with tools to help improve your CV.
8. Our graduates have an average starting salary of £25,000
Our graduates have gone on to work for the likes of BBC, Dyson, Snapchat and many more with an average median salary of £25,000. This is 19.05% more than the national graduate average.
9. Central London Location
Being a student in central London means there is an endless list of things to do and places to see (when you’re not studying of course!). Our campus at 190 High Holborn is just a five minute walk from Covent Garden and ten minutes away from Oxford Street, so you’ll have many shops, bars and restaurants on your doorstep.
10. Free tea and coffee!
As we try to mimic the real working environment of the Pearson Plc offices above Pearson College London, we have free tea and coffee for all students, as well as a subsidised cafe. Not only does it save our students money, but it is delicious!
