to 27th November
Bupa Business Challenge
An opportunity to gain experience of a global provider of health and care in the North West through the Bupa Foundation.
Manchester Met is working alongside the Bupa Foundation, the charitable arm of Bupa UK, to develop a programme to support undergraduates from across the University in gaining important skills to make the transition into the workplace post-graduation. The course covers three strands: • A business challenge • Bespoke training sessions to help you on your career path • Insight from those currently on the Bupa Graduate scheme The business challenge will require you to investigate a market sector in the UK. You will need to investigate and analyse that market, and then draw conclusions and make recommendations from your findings. These will involve a short presentation to the panel, where your ideas and recommendations will be explored further. Key to your success will be working as a team – ensuring you share the workload, support each other and utilise the necessary skillsets to deliver to deadline. The Bupa Foundation team has developed tailored workshops to support you with your career post university. During the programme you will meet Bupa employees and be scheduled virtual coffees with current members of the graduate scheme to understand the transition to employment, their experience of the first few years of the workplace and some useful hints/tips. Participants will be required to attend a pre-briefing in the week of 1st November; exact date and time to be confirmed. Please note, that this activity is available for undergraduates only. Application is by expression of interest. When you book a ‘ticket’ you will be asked to give us a very brief account of why you would like to take part. We will try to make as many places available as possible, but if it is very popular we will need to prioritise based on these expressions of interest. Please note we can only accept expressions of interest provided through this form; emails may not be considered. Applications from 1st Generation students will also be prioritised; please indicate this in your expression of interest if this applies to you.
