What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

The number of business studies graduates fell significantly last year after a long period of increase. But there were still more than 14,000 degrees awarded and this is the third most popular subject for new graduates. Because so many graduates get business studies degrees, you can find them everywhere in the economy, and very few jobs are completely out of reach for a good business studies graduate. Around 40% go into jobs in finance, sales, recruitment, management (particularly retail) or marketing. There is also a small (but well paid) group who take their technical skills into computing and IT. Thousands of graduates from this subject go into professional jobs every year, and average starting salaries are above the average for all subjects and particularly healthy in London where they top £25k. Graduates with good degree grades in business studies are much more likely to get good jobs, so don’t be complacent, and keep a close eye on your grades.

Top job areas of graduates

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Information services covers a broad range of degree options including librarianship and museum studies, which are usually only taken by a small number of students at first degree level. These areas tend to be much more popular at postgraduate level - and with a lot of competition for jobs in libraries and museums, most (but not all) of these jobs go to holders of Masters qualifications. However, many industries are increasingly looking for professionals skilled in managing data and information - so there are related jobs to be had with just a first degree and starting salaries are actually a little above average for this subject.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
