For student

The biggest obstacle in between a student and their perfect job is lack of experience, which prevents them from applying theory and which can devalue business education. Furthermore, the value creation that comes from an industry placement is unparalleled, and can dramatically enhance employability.

Well-publicised internship opportunities at larger organisations in the UK are limited and competitive. Expeedu connects smaller business with the students (many of whom are studying for an MBA) seeking industry opportunities.
