Career opportunities

CAREER MANAGEMENT SKILLS

The Business Integrated Core Programme in level 1 provides
opportunities to experience and understand the different functional
areas of business so students are able to make informed decisions
about in which area of business they wish specialise. At the end of
the first phase of the programme, students are able to change their
area of specialism or move into general Business Studies.

The course offers an optional one year work placement in year 3,
which tutors encourage all students to consider. Students are
introduced to the Work Placement in Year 1 and offered support
throughout Year 2 in finding a placement. Sessions and help are
offered, for example on CV writing, job searching and interview
skills.

The course is designed to be vocational, developing skills required
by employers, and tutors focus on this aspect with students.

Throughout the course there is interaction with the careers
department at appropriate junctures including induction and in annual
careers conferences in which local and national employers are invited
to come in to the university and talk both formally and informally
with students.

CAREER/FURTHER STUDY OPPORTUNITIES

Career:

Graduates find employment in all areas of business but it is
anticipated that their course specialisation will lean them towards a
career in a Marketing related activity. Many students work for large
multinational organisations but increasingly they go to smaller
organisations where there are opportunities to work across a number of
functional areas. Some graduates work in charities and others pursue
careers in teaching.
