Creating business impact through knowledge engagement

Knowledge engagement

Knowledge engagement drives our activities and is the means by which Plymouth Business School seeks to share ideas, information and research.

If you are a student, knowledge engagement is how we improve your employability by exposing you to guest speakers, real-life problems and assignments. Knowledge engagement also allows you to offer your growing expertise to external organisations through internships, placements and consultancy.

If you are an employer, knowledge engagement is how we ensure that our students have the skills, attributes and experience that you require. We encourage close interaction between employers and our students.
