Undergraduate student placement opportunities
Lancaster University Management School has over 200 students each year who are available to undertake placements with organisations. The placements are an assessed part of the student's course. Placements can be of 12, six or three months' duration.
Most undergraduates requiring placements are taking a general management degree called the BBA in Management or the BBA in International Business Management. Other students come from more specialised areas such as Marketing Management, Business Analytics and Consultancy, Accounting and Finance, Economics, Management and IT, Management and Entrepreneurship and Management and Organisational Behaviour.
The students on these courses are of high academic calibre, and employers have found them to be capable, highly motivated and commercially aware. On our Undergraduate Profiles, you'll find many case studies in which our graduates talk about the placements they have completed.
As with all Management School programmes, these courses place a very strong emphasis on practice as well as theory. One of the most important aims of our degrees is to prepare students for a career in management. Placements should therefore involve genuine responsibility for the students.
Lancaster University Management School facilitates, monitors and co-ordinates all placements. At the end of the placements students are expected to submit a report or dissertation (depending on type of placement) on their experience to the Management School.
