Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

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.
