Marketing offers endless opportunities for creativity and innovation. It’s about understanding what people need and making their lives better.

We see a different world of marketing where we strive to have an impact on more than the balance sheet. A world where social responsibility is at the heart of everything we do. Let’s shape the world. Let’s make things happen. Let’s make a difference.

This is Mason

Meet Business and Marketing graduate Mason. Mason took advantage of a year-long placement with BSH Home Appliances, a global company whose brands include Bosch, Siemens and Neff. It gave him first-hand insights into how multinational business operates. They were so impressed with Mason that he landed a graduate role with them.

One of the highlights for me was taking part in the Two+Two Marketing Event, at which teams from UK universities get hands on with a client brief, and pitch ideas to a judging panel. Steven Bartlett (Dragons Den) offered the winner the opportunity to spend a day with him in London.
