— Creative Industries knowledge cluster
Manchester Metropolitan University Business School
All Saints Campus
The Creative Industries cluster in the Knowledge Hub organised this event in partnership with the MPA (Manchester Publicity Association – the Voice of Manchester’s Communications Community) to develop invaluable networks with some of the top graduate recruiters from the industry.
This event addressed the employability needs of postgraduate students on the following programmes seeking employment within the creative industry:
Career options included those in the marketing, public relations, advertising and digital sectors. Students were offered the opportunity for one-to-one and small group sessions, and workshops throughout the day.
We have fantastic partnerships within industry and this gives us and our students unrivalled access to the leaders of the businesses they will soon be applying to.
The skills students learn on our courses help to prepare them for life in the creative industries, whether agency or in-house, so they can step straight into working on marketing, advertising, public relations and digital campaigns, strategies and solutions.
