Graduates from around the world who touched down in London in February to take part in BAT’s first ever Graduate Academy tell us why they were excited to be there.

The action-packed two-week academy is the formal learning element of our Global Graduate Programme to develop a next generation of leaders for BAT. More than 50 graduates – representing 18 different nationalities – took part in the Academy. Before flying in for ten days of stretch and challenge, they were asked to submit videos on what excited them most about taking part in the Academy. Within hours the videos came streaming in, shot with background views that reflected the diversity of the graduate’s end markets: from white-sand beaches to glass-walled cityscapes. Common themes include being excited about meeting new people, engaging with senior leaders – including our Chief Executive and HR Director – and building international networks.
