The UBC is specifically designed to introduce graduates to top employers and to develop employability skills such as:

  • Analytical skills
  • Commercial awareness
  • Influencing skills
  • Leadership
  • Planning and organising
  • Time-management

Best and brightest - a source of motivated graduates

The UBC attracts the most motivated students from the UK's leading universities. Participation in the Challenge develops their commercial acumen, team-working and employability skills. This is a major opportunity to not only promote your employer brand to the best and the brightest, but to support an event that develops the skills that employers are looking for in their graduate intake.
