We work closely with industry through ‘Course Connect’ module partnerships, our Department Advisory Board drawn from regional industry, and our close relationships with regional bodies such as FinTech West. Embedded themes of enterprise and internationalisation, sustainability and ethics, cut across all our programmes. Our research is directed firmly at impact and is integral to our teaching delivery.
