Students outside campus

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Although management degrees are a popular choice, with nearly 5,800 degrees awarded, numbers fell quite a bit last year. 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 marketing, human resources, sales, business development and accountancy. And for management grads wanting something a little left-field, our serious shortage of surveyors means well over a hundred graduates a year are taking this lucrative option. This is a flexible degree that can fit graduates for all sorts of work.
