Carmarthen Business School Industry Links
At Carmarthen Business School our students benefit from our excellent links with local and regional industry and the partnerships we have with the public, private and third sectors. Within our modules students benefit from integrated fieldwork and guest speakers drawn from a range of sectors.
Many of our modules also now have assessment linked with key organisations so that students have the opportunity to work on real problems and in doing so actively contribute to the development of organisations and the region as a whole.
In HND and BA programmes all students must undertake at least one period of internship of no less than twenty days. We have been working with employers to ensure that our students work on specific task and finish projects for their internship period. Many students also have the opportunity to extend the internship project work into a small research project for their final year dissertation.
A key development has been the launch of ‘Llwybro Sir Gar: Rethinking Carmarthenshire’s Economy Together’ which is a collaboration between Carmarthen Business School and Carmarthenshire County Council’s Economic Development Department. The collaboration sees the two organisations working together to give students experiences of placements and live projects both within the local authority and the wider business community.
Enterprise and entrepreneurship is also a key aspect of our programmes, with many of our graduates choosing to develop their own businesses. Within our programmes we encourage the development of business ideas through annual competitions and with the provision of support from a network which includes Carmarthen Business school staff members, the UWTSD Research, Enterprise and innovation services Department and Carmarthenshire County Council.
