LJMU vs MMU placement oppurtunitesWatch
How do the placements work at these two universities for business management?
I can't comment on placements at LJMU, but here at MMU you can undertake a Placement Year as part of our BA (Hons) Business Management. This is a great opportunity to gain high-quality work experience and structured on-the-job training whilst earning a salary. There are also opportunities for you to undertake a placement based project where you research a business issue for your employer. This project can count towards one of your final year units and reduces your workload in your final year. The placement must be a minimum of 36 weeks, but it will usually last for 12 months and takes place after your second year of study.
We have an award-winning placement team, who advertise vacancies and can help you find a placement. The team has over 25 years experience of matching students to employers. They advertise over 1,000 vacancies each year, organise an annual placement fair where you can meet employers who are actively recruiting placement students, deliver CV workshops, provide one-to-one advice, and will conduct a mock interview with you so you can practice your interview technique.
We recommend that you start researching companies and opportunities during your first year and apply for positions at the start of your second year, as the placement market is competitive. Finding the right opportunity and the right position is important because if you are a good match to your placement, your employer could offer you a full-time position when you have graduated.
