Business Agenda

Essex Business School: A Distinctive Approach.
We are developing new business leaders who will flourish in the face of global change and who will make a meaningful and lasting impact, not only in businesses like yours, but also in the wider community.
Join us in shaping a new business agenda and download our most recent brochure.

Essex Business School develops long term partnerships with private, public and third-sector organisations.

Business excellence

With exposure to a range of real-life business situations and bespoke career planning from day one, our students really stand out from the crowd. Exciting business collaborations ensure that they understand how global business really operates – and why. At Essex Business School, we pride ourselves on our business connections that help us and our students grow, whilst also providing support and value to the business community.

External partnerships

Our external partnerships extend from our Advisory Board and our  Executive Fellows to our many Partner Organisations.

It is the development of these long-term client relationships that is key to our provision of a complete range of high quality services to both the business and not-for-profit community, including degree courses, policy oriented research, and consultancy and advice services.

Some of the ways in which we work with business include:

  • sourcing industry speakers for guest lectures and seminars;
  • providing high quality business students for internships;
  • graduate recruitment;
  • research collaboration;
  • business expertise input to course content;
  • opportunities to sponsor students or involvement in scholarship funds;
  • exploring opportunities for Executive Education;
  • business consultancy from internationally recognised academics; and
  • providing business advice to the voluntary sector.

 

Collaborative PhDs

As part of its 50th anniversary celebrations, the University has established a £1million fund to support new PhD Studentships. The University will match funding from external organisations which therefore reduces the cost to both parties. Essex Business School is looking for collaborative partners where a PhD student could help tackle an on-going business issue.  

Further information on the University's links with business is available on the University Business page.

Partner Organisations

EBS Partner Organisations

Our Partner Organisations provide excellent internships, contribute to workshops and conferences and run key events that involve our staff and students. Locally, nationally and internationally, Essex Business School strives to draw in only the best expertise from the modern business world.
