Welcome to the Faculty of Business and best wishes for a successful academic year.
It is with great pleasure I am introducing to you the Faculty of Business’s Student Life Hub, which I hope you will find an invaluable resource towards your development as a smart learner and for becoming a confident professional.
Successful contemporary careers rely, among other things, on being able to navigate through seemingly contradictory organisational tasks such as monitoring and controlling while encouraging creativity and innovation; fostering responsible and sustainable business practices while maintaining a clear focus to customer needs and demands; cultivating a forward-looking and forward-thinking approach while delivering short-term operational targets consistently, and, finally motivating high-performance organisational structures while fully respecting the needs of the individual.
Multi-disciplinary in nature, the Faculty of Business can draw upon the strengths of different Schools and a community of fully engaged scholars to deliver the skills and competencies required by professionals confident in navigating such a demanding landscape.
The Student Life Hub will provide you access to all the essential information you need to experience the full benefits of the research, innovation, teaching and learning resources and extra curricula activities in the Faculty of Business and at the University of Plymouth.
I take this opportunity to encourage you to make full use of the Student Life Hub. It is your future success that is our objective, and we all look forward to working together to achieve this.
Welcome on board.
