Careers and employability

Business School graduation.

According to the latest Destination of Leavers of Higher Education survey, 87% of our undergraduates are in employment or further study within six months of graduation.

Importantly, 73% of those who were working were in a graduate occupation.

Our graduates enter in to a variety of careers from major global organisations to small boutique companies. They span the private, public and third sectors across the UK, Europe and internationally.

Companies represented include Sky, Barclays Corporate, Citibank, Deloitte, KPMG, Microsoft, JP Morgan and BMW.

Employability is important to us and we are committed to preparing you for life outside of education, supporting you to achieve your future career ambitions in a competitive jobs market. Whether you have a clear idea regarding what you’d like to do upon graduation or no idea at all, we are here to help, guide, and support you through your journey.

Within the School you will have access to a dedicated Careers Centre (this is in addition to the support services offered by the University) offering a business specific service to assist you in realising your career ambitions.

We also offer number of opportunities to increase your work experience and introduce you to the practical world of business. These can be short periods of work tied to a specific project or a professional placement year.

Remember, it is never too early to start planning for your future employability, so grasp the opportunities available and get off to a flying start.
