Meet Matt from IBM who talks about the benefits of signing up to Bournemouth University's Graduate Skills Programme:

We are very excited to be working with these organisations this year to bring student unique opportunities to attend insight days, to attend employer-led Graduate Skills Masterclasses and to be invited to unique networking sessions to gain an insight into the graduate job opportunities available at these organisations.

As the Graduate Skills Programme grows its industry collaboration, we would like to hear from other organisations who might be interested in this opportunity.
