Sharing (S3B)

Continuously benchmark the skills needed by employers and reflect these in our Fusion-based curricula.


The changing needs of employers will be reflected in, and a catalyst for, refreshing the academic curricula.

By 2015 direct business input will be demonstrable at programme level through mechanisms such as business advisory boards. Professional recognition through accreditation and Sector Skills kite-marking will form a powerful combination that will distinguish BU from our competitors.

By 2018 BU will have established a robust business engagement function that supports continuous and high quality interaction with business and feeds the latest thinking and intelligence gained back into Schools and our curriculum development.
