Employing a Sheffield University Management School student or graduate through an internship, part-time or graduate role, can inject your organisation with fresh ideas and enthusiasm. With a talent pool of undergraduate, postgraduate and MBA strong students, we can advertise your vacancy to help you meet your business needs.

Our students


Typically, a Management School Undergraduate will have studied a degree in Business Management (sometimes with a language), or Business or Accounting alongside another subject such as Economics.

They will have studied relevant and up-to-date theory as well as developing a critical understanding from applying theory to real-business situations. Many of our undergraduates will have practical working experience from undertaking summer placements and part-time work during their studies, as well as year-long placements in industry. The Employability Hub ensures that students have had the chance to network with our industry partners in a professional environment, and that they are well-prepared for the relevant aspects of the application process.


By the time our Postgraduate taught (MSc) students have graduated, they are globally aware, work-ready and prepared for the competitive professional market.

Many of our masters courses offer students the opportunity to undertake an organisational project, giving them real-world work experience with our corporate partners to solve a real business issue. Whilst MSc graduates will be specialists in their chosen fields, they'll also have critical understanding of ‘the bigger picture.’ With a programme of choice guest speakers, it's important that our students hear from current leaders at the top of their game, as well as having many opportunities to network with our flourishing business and alumni community to begin building their own professional networks.

MBA graduates

Excelling in the three core challenges of modern business, MBA Graduates are fully equipped in entrepreneurship, leadership, and consultancy to spearhead the business world of tomorrow.

Sheffield’s applied approach ensures that our MBA delegates have the skills that leaders need – the ability to analyse, innovate and implement change, whilst also benefitting from cutting-edge knowledge which is embedded in our teaching. With an already impressive career in business, delegates build on their practical experience by undertaking assignments in collaboration with our industry partners, and the possibility of competing a dissertation within an organisational setting. As graduates of our executive education programme, MBAs have access to a ready-made network of global connections and opportunities from fellow MBA alumni and the School's corporate partners.

Postgraduate researchers

Employing those who have continued in education beyond first degree by carrying out independent research, can bring many benefits to an organisation. Our PhD students at Sheffield University Management School join our community of scholars, have been engaged in outstanding socially responsible research, and fully equipped for a successful career in academia or industry.
