Careers and employability

We will provide you with all the support, advice and guidance you need to prepare you for the workplace throughout your time at Leicester Castle Business School and beyond. We can offer you opportunities to gain vital skills and professional experience to help you secure your ideal job.

All students and recent graduates can benefit from one-to-one and group coaching sessions, both face-to-face and over the telephone, offered by DMU’s dedicated Careers and Employability Team.

As a Leicester Castle Business School student, you will have a personal development plan to track your progress when working with your careers mentor. We also offer students the opportunity to complete a Professional Skills Award which recognises the skills and knowledge you have developed during your academic study and helps you prepare for and secure employment after graduation.

It is important to us that our students focus on improving their international employability. We encourage you to take advantage of opportunities including company projects, social internships and entrepreneurship projects, in addition to academic options such as additional language study.
