Career opportunities

Over 13,500 degrees in business studies were awarded in 2012, and for a long time this was the most popular degree subject of all – one in 23 grads study a business studies degree. Numbers are still growing, but it dropped down to number three in the table this year. Because so many graduates get business studies degrees, you can find them everywhere in the economy, and very few jobs are completely out of reach for a good business studies graduate. They are most likely to go into jobs in finance, management or marketing, so the stats have been hit slightly because the finance industry hasn’t been in the best of health in the economic downturn. But thousands of graduates from this subject go into professional jobs every year, and average starting salaries are very slightly above the average for all subjects. Graduates with good degree grades in business studies are much more likely to get good jobs, so don’t be complacent, and keep a close eye on your grades.
