The AUB Innovation team works closely with the Employability team to develop skills sessions for students for their future careers, setting up their own businesses or becoming freelancers.
During 2019 we ran two separate employability initiatives in addition to our year offer. We’ll be running them again in 2020. We really value the expertise of our alumni and professionals in Industry, if you are interested in contributing to any of our events, please contact Alison Zorraquin on email@example.com to discuss possible workshops or initiatives.
