ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the Manchester Leadership Programme (MLP) at Manchester University which gives students an edge in the graduate recruitment market. The leadership programme also involves degree-accredited academic units and voluntary work designed to create future business leaders and give graduates employability skills they might not pick up on their degree course. Demand for the MLP, which was first run in 2005, is increasing, with 450 students taking part in 2007-2008 academic year and 600 places forecast for 2008-2009.
