Teaching and Learning Conference 2019: Doing it for real: Connecting Business students to Mathematics via employability skills

We present employer-academic initiatives within Norwich Business School designed to help validate Mathematics Statistics and Quantitative Methods to students. Specifically these initiatives are student analysis of a real data set of client insurance information provided by Alan Boswell Group and an opportunity to “Be a Broker” an immersive teaching event designed and run by the insurance broking company Marsh.  We show how these sessions are run and the effect they have on the employability skills of students evidenced by successful recruitment of participating students into internships as well as direct testimony from both students and employers.
