The anticipated destination of students in this programme is management roles in a wide range of private, public and third sector organisations (including social enterprises), particularly the most innovative students. A small number may form their own businesses on graduation, or within a few years of graduating.
The intent of the BSc Accounting and Finance programme is not to encourage too-early business formation, but to develop wider enterprising competencies that will enable employability in a range of organisations. Understanding better quality venture creation should be the result for students who choose this path.
Southampton has an enviable record for producing high-calibre graduates who move quickly into good careers soon after finishing their studies. The latest survey of Management graduates showed that 89% were employed or undertaking further study six months after graduating.
Employers value the quality of these programmes and recognise the skills of the graduates. Many graduates go on to professional training and graduate management schemes while others begin careers in management, accounting, finance or banking.
