What can you do with a business degree?

Business is one of the most popular degree subjects in the UK right now. The reason behind this is because it opens up many different career paths after graduation.

A business degree gives you transferable skills that you can use in future employment as well as many graduate study opportunities should you wish to enhance your knowledge and employability chances further.

If youre wondering what jobs are available to you with a business degree, here are some of the most in-demand careers at the moment.

Marketing and Advertising

If you have a strong creative streak and an eye for design, a career in marketing could be a perfect choice.

Business graduates can use their analytical skills to evaluate how campaigns are doing and their communication skills to work with third-party agencies.

Sales

Many students with business degrees find themselves most at home in the world of sales.

A strong business background helps salespeople network, build relationships with clients and understand how the products and services they are promoting work.

Accounting and finance

A business degree covers analytics, business finance and business law – all things you need to know if you decide to go down the accounting and finance route.

If you want to progress your career in accounting, you may need to take additional qualifications. However, skilled accountants are always in high demand at many organisations.

Entrepreneur 

If you see yourself as the next Jeff Bezos or Sir Richard Branson, a business degree will give you a solid knowledge of the business process, from financing and operations to sales and marketing. This is invaluable when setting up on your own.

Human Resources

When you work in Human Resources, you need to know all about employment law, how organisations work and how to help people develop. A business degree teaches you all of these things, meaning you are ideally placed to listen to staff and help them grow in their careers.
