Connections and affiliations

We work with local businesses, companies from across the UK and instantly-recognised brands to establish partnerships and collaborations that deliver business and social benefit.

We support employers and are committed to preparing our students for the world of work, providing educated and employable graduates.

There are opportunities to get involved with #DMUlocal, a programme that aims to make a significant contribution to the social and economic development of Leicester and bring positive change across the city.

We provide start-up and small business support at the university's Innovation Centre, and opportunities for free legal advice and guidance.

Our Industry Innovation Forums build on our high-points of research excellence and links with business and industry to drive forward knowledge exchange and collaboration and underpin the development of long-term relationships.

You can also find out more about the many companies and organisations we have worked with by viewing our Case Studies.
