Postgraduate business visits

See behind the scenes and understand how business practices work in real organisations.

We want your postgraduate experience to be the best it can be.

In order to help your understanding of how business practices work in real organisations, we arrange an annual schedule of business visits for you to take part in. These visits are free and open to all Masters students of the business school. The benefit of going on a business visit is that you can really see behind the scenes of how some of the world’s biggest brands operate. Each visit usually includes a tour of the facilities and a guest speaker from the company.

The schedule of visits vary each year, but as a guide, here are the businesses we have visited in previous years:

Manchester United Football Club

A 90-minute guided Stadium and Museum tour and guest speaker on the management of business operations.

Robinsons Brewery

Tour of 175-year-old brewery – includes 90 minute guided tour of brewery, brewing techniques, beer tasting and guest speaker.

BBC MediaCity UK

A 90-minute tour of the most interesting areas available on the day of your visit, as well as giving you a fascinating insight into how TV and radio broadcast work.

Jaguar LandRover

Tour of the LandRover factory – including every stage of the vehicle assembly process from the sheet metal press, to painting and robot assembly of the driveline, all the way through to the finished product.

The annual schedule of business visits are announced in early October and visits take place on key dates throughout the year.
