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.

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.
