Business and Management

A business degree remains one of the most well regarded qualifications available. Many students will see it as a route into banking, investment, insurance, accounting, financial management, sales, marketing, insurance, human resources management or financial services. Others may use it to pursue city-based alternatives such as property or management consultancy.

Whatever you decide to do with your business degree, it is important to start planning early.
