Talent pipeline

At Nottingham Business School we understand that companies are looking to innovate not just in their processes but with their employees too. Making sure you have the team you need to grow your business means not filling vacancies as they arise, but building a talent pipeline that continuously grows and provides you with the skills you need to make your business thrive.


We work closely with more than 600 companies, public and third sector organisations across the world that engage with the School by seeking our help in providing top graduate, management and leadership talent as well as the expertise of internationally renowned staff in business, management and economics.

Building a talent pipeline in your company allows you to:

  • Recruit new talent cost-effectively;
  • Gain fresh perspective and cutting-edge ideas;
  • Bring the latest thinking into your business;
  • Work closely with the university to tailor the degree to your own organisation requirements;
  • Grow a graduate pool of talent, reducing future graduate recruitment costs through higher retention rates.


The courses available for talent development include:

These two courses give students the opportunity to combine studying and working.

This unique opportunity allows organisations to capture high quality new talent and develop them into future managers by sponsoring students to study for their degree whilst simultaneously working full-time within the organisation.

Take advantage of this unique course which offers aspiring managers the opportunity to complete a degree which combines theoretical understanding and practical work experience.
