Uni Talk Column: University of Buckingham strikes again with new MK Lightning stars

Local uni to educate ice hockey players after renewing club sponsorship

Four new Smith Recycling Milton Keynes Lightning players are embarking on a new challenge alongside their day job as professional ice hockey players by studying a Masters in Business Administration with The University of Buckingham.

The University of Buckingham has returned as a platinum sponsor of the team in 2018-19 for a second consecutive term as a key backer to the Elite League ice hockey team.

As part of the sponsorship agreement with the Lightning, the University engages with MKL’s successful Business Club and once again, four players will study for a Masters qualification as well as playing for MKL.

New signings Clay Anderson, Nelson Armstrong, Ryan Lannon and Trevor Morbeck are preparing to join the rest of the new students who will begin their studies this month.

Clay said: “I am very excited to further my education at the University of Buckingham this year while also playing hockey for the Milton Keynes Lightning.

“It is a one of a kind experience that not many get to pursue and I look forward to taking full advantage of it.”

Marketing and Business Partnerships Manager at The University of Buckingham, Bethany Janes, commented: “We’re absolutely delighted to have renewed our partnership agreement with MKL. It’s been extremely beneficial on both sides and a pleasure to work with everyone involved.”

Get in touch with The University of Buckingham now to find out how you can study alongside your day job and get ahead of the crowd.
