"Doing MBDA's business apprenticeship allows me to gain hands on experience that I can apply to the theory I'm learning within my degree. I wouldn't have been able to put what I was learning at university into practice, which was one of many reasons that the scheme appealed to me." Izzy- Business apprentice
