This week our guests discuss growing through takeovers and graduate recruitment.
Does size really matter? Last year, corporate takeovers totalled £2 trillion worldwide. Our guests on the programme this week have experience in both taking over companies and being swallowed up by bigger fish. We find out about some unusual takeover strategies and ask: how big is too big?
Also, it’s commonly thought that a degree sets graduates on the track for a successful career. But if that’s the case, why are employers increasingly worried about skill shortages and problems finding top candidates? We look at graduate recruitment and ask what role education should play in training workers and managers.
