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

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
- exploring opportunities for Executive Education;
- business consultancy from internationally recognised
- providing business advice to the voluntary sector.
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.
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.
The Essex Business School Executive Fellows are senior
practitioners from the commercial, public and voluntary sectors who are closely
associated with the School. They contribute to curriculum development and
teaching delivery within the School and provide the link to an extended network
of industry practitioners.
