Edinburgh Business School, Heriot-Watt University, are seeking members of the business community in and around Edinburgh to work alongside them to help to prepare tomorrow’s leaders for tomorrow’s markets.  

If you have time to spare and would potentially be interested in joining our thriving community, please join us on Tuesday December 14th for an online workshop where we will demonstrate the skills needed and outline the opportunities available.

At Edinburgh Business School, we pride ourselves on our engagement with a wide range of industries and employers and have an excellent reputation for our graduate employability (ranked 1st in Scotland in the 2019 Times Good University Guide). We are always keen to develop our pool of business leaders who can enhance the learning experiences of our students. By sharing your own stories, you can support our students to better understand the realities of contemporary organisations and develop their skills at solving real-world business problems. By helping increase the employability of our students, you can contribute to developing the business leaders of tomorrow.

There are many ways that you can choose to engage with us, from helping develop case studies based on your own organisation, to giving guest lectures, to undertaking paid work for us teaching, supervising projects, or marking student assessments. If you are interested in learning more about how your experience could help our students, we would like to invite you to attend a short workshop on 14th December. This session will enable you to develop your understanding of EBS, hear from some of our existing faculty who have transitioned from industry into academia, and explore how to take real-world problems and develop them into learning tools for business students. You will also gain insights into how to design and deliver impactful teaching.

The session will take place online between 10:00 and 14:00 on the 14th December 2021. If you would like to attend, please can you email Helen Ashley (helen.ashley@hw.ac.uk) and she will send you the link to the event. If you are unable to attend but would like to learn more about working with Edinburgh Business School, or indeed have any questions about the day please let Helen know and we will contact you directly to discuss further. We welcome people from all areas of business expertise – human resources, marketing, finance, accounting, operations, supply chain logistics, legal & governance, strategy, including people who have started and led their own businesses of any size.
