Said BBS Diamond Jubilee Professor of Law, Stephen Hardy: ‘It's vital for the University of Bolton’s new Business School to forge strong links with businesses, listen to their advice and understand what they are looking for in professional services graduates. This way we can deliver even better courses and help encourage local graduates to stay in our region to develop their careers.’
