Westminster ranked as a top University for marketing jobs at Unilever and Microsoft

19 November 2014

According to a Business Insider article, the professional network LinkedIn has ranked the University of Westminster as one of the most likely to have graduates working at some of the top companies for marketing executives.

LinkedIn looked at the moves of marketing executives and identified the top companies that attract more candidates than anyone else. The network then checked which companies were better at retaining their staff once hired, and looked at where those marketers went to university. And finally, for each university, it found the percentage of alumni who got marketing jobs at those top companies to come up with its rankings.

Business Insider shows that graduates from the University of Westminster are working at Unilever, Microsoft, Sony Music Entertainment and Tesco. To read the full article, please visit the Business Insider website.
