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.

This is a flexible degree that can fit graduates for all sorts of work.
