De Montfort University (DMU) is a dynamic institution with a diverse range of schools and departments – our exchange of knowledge and research expertise with business spans a wide variety of sectors.
DMU works with a number of recognised industry partners, from collaborations on courses with organisations such as the BBC and the NHS, to sponsorship of our cutting-edge facilities by companies like Orange.
DMU also works with KFC, one of the world’s biggest restaurant groups, on a degree course that’s specifically designed for its restaurant general managers in the UK.
The contract sees KFC managers studying a bespoke BA (Hons) Management degree on DMU’s city centre campus.
This is an example of DMU developing a sponsored degree programme that links directly to a business’ development programme for its staff, making DMU its training partner.
