We value the relationships we have within Nottingham's business community, and we know that by working in partnership with companies we can help to play a role in promoting Nottingham as a great place to do business."

James Sheldon, Director of National Sales UK and Ireland for Experian, graduated from the course in July. He said: "I have been able to apply what I learned in my role at Experian, which has made me more effective in my role."

Applicants are asked to write 1,000 words on the following topic: 'The Executive MBA aims to develop people to become organisational leaders who have clarity in their thinking and a strong sense of values. What is it about you that makes you suitable for the Post Scholarship and how do you think you might use it to benefit the local community?'

Our unique new programme has a strong focus on significant real-world experience and can be structured to match individual aspirations.
