Business School Of The Year

Northumbria University is pleased to present an evening of Business-themed lectures for 16-18 year olds, covering a wide range of exciting and modern insights into the world of Business, and what the future may hold for the industry. This is a perfect opportunity for current Business students, or students with an overall interest in the subject, to receive an exclusive session specifically tailored for a sixth form audience.

Teachers and parents are also welcomed to attend.

Attendees will hear three quickfire lectures, with an opportunity for a Q&A at the end with the presenters, and also some of our recent Business graduates.

“I didn’t forget, it’s in the post, honest!”:

  • How online companies deliver £12bn worth of presents in time for Christmas

“Driving Home for Christmas”

  • How to look after your staff over the Festive Season

The lectures take place on Wednesday, 13 December 2017. Doors open at 16:00.
