Business Development Skills business development

Since business development directly impacts the success of a sales team, having basic sales skills can help you succeed in a business development role. Employers will also usually want you to have experience in sales, marketing or business management. Work experience, internships or year in industry placements can help you gain commercial skills.

Students will be given the opportunity to undertake work experience, volunteer, study abroad or take part in desk-based consultancy. Students will be invited to apply the concepts of personal and professional development to what they are experiencing outside the classroom in order to be better prepared for their personal and professional life. With experience, you could progress to roles like senior development manager, business development executive or marketing director. Business development managers build relationships with customers, suppliers and partners. Part-time or vacation work in a business that has a focus on business development and management is particularly useful, but any experience gained within sales, marketing or business administration will be good for your CV and skill set. It will also show future employers that you’re serious about your career choice.

You’ll be fully supported and prepared for your placement, and graduate with significant work experience, in-depth knowledge and understanding of your chosen sector. Graduate training schemes are offered by some companies and organisations. Employers tend to be larger companies that can dedicate time and resources towards developing their business. In smaller companies, business development is usually carried out as a smaller function within a broader mix of responsibilities. But you’ll more than likely be looking to identify new markets, new partnerships, new ways to reach existing markets, or new product or service offerings to better meet the needs of existing markets.
