Scotland’s most talented business students will be able to meet key business leaders through an exclusive network to be launched by Strathclyde Business School.
The school said the Strathclyde Business Fellow Network will give MBA students the opportunity to network with senior executives from some of Scotland’s biggest companies, including Edinburgh-based life assurance major Standard Life, and Clyde Blowers Capital.
Strathclyde Business School said as a result students will be able to tap into “a wealth of emerging business talent” through TV “apprentice-style” challenges in which teams of MBA students will work to apply their knowledge to real-world business problems.
Network members will also be invited to share their experience and expertise through regular guest lectures, networking events and by offering MBA students business internships.
Strathclyde Business School said it believed its students and graduates “represent a pool of fresh talent” well-placed to offer a new perspective on business issues.
Professor Susan Hart, dean of Strathclyde Business School said: “There is no substitute for real-world experience. By launching the Strathclyde Business Fellow Network, we intend to give our MBA students the chance to gain valuable, hands-on experience with some of the country’s leading companies.
“Our aim is to strengthen our engagement with the wider business community by allowing businesses access to our resources and providing them with the fresh approach that our pool of emerging business talent offers.”
She added that she hoped the initiative would inspire students to become “the business leaders of the future”.
