Employers are increasingly seeking to recruit 'global graduates' - graduates who see the world through a wider lens and who have both global knowledge and cultural agility. This programme is designed to give you the skills that employers are looking for.

In previous years, students have travelled in a small group to one of the eight destinations visiting alumni from a range of organisations to learn more about their businesses, roles, career journeys and what life is like living and working in the city. Throughout the visit they practiced their existing skills, developed new ones and built professional networks.

They also carried out an ambassadorial role for The University of Manchester and shared information about key developments for the institution.

The meetings with alumni were arranged in advance by the Global Graduates teamwho worked closely with the students before they travelled to ensure there were fully prepared.
