Careers and employment
We appreciate that one of the most important reasons for postgraduate study is to increase your employability, so the Business School has a dedicated Employability Team who will work with you on promoting and enhancing your employability. Through their support you will have the chance to develop skills, understanding and personal attributes that make you more likely to gain graduate level employment and be successful in your chosen occupation.
This support, combined with our reputation, has led graduates onto successful careers in academia, the public and the private sector. The Employability and Graduate Development web pages contain information about career planning and the support available to all students while the Business School's Building Brilliant Careers page provides information on the support provided in college.
