Career prospects

What do our graduates do?

Our Business Administration graduates have an excellent record of success and many take employment with one of the major graduate recruiting companies, often as a result of a successful work placement.

The two work placements enhance the career prospects for our business degree students, as they are particularly attractive to employers since they have already gained so much work experience on the course.
