1. Practical and theoretical

Your studies at university will help build your theoretical understanding of the business world. Alongside this, business schools tend to have close partnerships with both local and global businesses. Through these connections, you’ll benefit from the latest business techniques as well as have opportunities for work placements.

2. Case-based learning

During your course, you can expect to learn through practical and relevant experiences. Business degrees are notorious for having a high level of case-based learning where universities use real-life examples, setting you up for work in the professional world.

3. Combined courses

Business schools usually offer a number of dual honours degrees. You could combine a business education with another subject of interest, or explore two strands of business in greater detail. You'll also be able to select from a variety of modules and tailor the degree according to your career aspirations. Alternatively, you can choose to keep your education broad, and specialise later in life.

4. International perspective

Business & Management Studies provides opportunities for specialist international modules and even a study or placement year abroad. This gives you the chance to gain a broader understanding of the subject area while experiencing a new environment and getting a taste of working life.

5. Good graduate prospects

Just order our Business Studies & Management subject table by the graduate prospects measure and you’ll see that business students enjoy a pretty good chance of being in professional employment within six months of graduating.

6. Transferable skills

The many transferable skills you'll develop are in high demand, such as communication, decision making, numeracy, presentation and generally understanding how an organisation operates. As a business graduate, you’ll have a wide variety of career choices along with the aptitude required to work in any industry.
