Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Information systems courses cover a range of areas, including information design, modelling and the finance industry. How well graduates did made a particular difference in 2012 – computing graduates with good grades were much less likely to be out of work after six months. Most students do get jobs, though, and starting salaries are good – particularly in London, and that’s where over a quarter of graduates started work last year. Be realistic with these degrees – opportunities are not spread throughout the country and you might struggle, for example, to get an information systems job outside the larger cities.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Management degrees are a popular choice, with more than 6,000 graduates in 2012. It's not a surprise to hear that a lot of graduates from the subject went into management, and remember that, for this degree, a lot of the jobs are in London. But management graduates tried their hands at all sorts of different jobs last year – not just those within the finance industry, but also community work, IT, marketing and PR and even surveying. This is a flexible degree that can fit graduates for all sorts of work.
