Tarmac welcome Aston Business School
Group of MBA students visit company’s headquarters to learn more about leadership in practice
A GROUP of MBA students from Aston Business School recently visited Tarmac’s Solihull head office for the final segment of a programme involving meeting Birmingham-based companies to understand more about leadership in practice.
The group was welcomed by nine leaders from areas across Tarmac including customer experience, sustainability, technology and automation, operations and project management.
The students were able to find out more about the importance of leadership within a national business and the range of expertise and disciplines within the company.
Professor Michael Butler from Aston Business School said: ‘Our MBA programme prioritizes a highly practical, experiential approach to learning, and site visits are a key part of this.
‘Our focus has been ‘Leading for Impact’, and Tarmac created a tailor-made package which allowed the students to explore in depth how the company’s leadership development initiatives have a positive impact across the business.’
Peter Spargo, Tarmac’s senior HR manager, a presenter at the event, explained: ‘It was great to welcome students from Aston Business School and share real-life examples of leadership in action.
‘Opportunities like this give us the ability to reach people outside our industry and work alongside other organizations in our community to support and nurture the leaders of tomorrow.’
