Work placements

At Alliance MBS we want to help you achieve your ambitions by giving you the skills to stand out in today’s competitive market and doing a work placement as part of your studies will help you do just that.

A degree is not always enough when you are competing in the job market and work experience is what will set you apart from other candidates after you graduate.

Opting to do a work placement will not only provide you with many benefits and skills that graduate employers look for but will also give you an insight into your chosen career path.

If you are a second year student on the placement programme please visit the Alliance MBS Industrial Placement Community on Blackboard where you will find plenty of useful information to help you through the application process.

The community can be found under My Communities.

The importance of employability skills is now greater than ever in the current economic climate.
