Why you need a business degree to take on the world…

If you’re looking to start a career in business, but don’t really know where to start, it may be worth taking a degree course in Business and Management – this way you’ll gain all of the knowledge and understanding you need to be successful, and make enough contacts to get you started, giving you a great head start into the corporate world. Here’s a brief overview of what you can expect from such a course, to help you decide if it’s right for you. 

What do you study?

A business degree covers many aspects and several job roles within the sector – while you might choose to specialise in economics or international business, many concentrate on the management side. As an example, Middlesex University offers a range of Business and Management courses, focused on different areas to help you make your way down the right career path. Modules include Management and Organisation; Human Resource Management in Practise; and Strategic Management, as well as a number of optional modules. Studying the leadership aspect of business in this much depth gives students and existing business owners an excellent foothold in proper technique, and a great starting level of experience with which to begin a career.

Where can you go?

There are hundreds of options within the management sector, with almost every kind of business requiring people with leadership skills to manage teams and distribution. Larger employers tend to hire more business management graduates, but a rising number of smaller firms are seeing the benefit of having somebody on board who can effectively manage the running of the company. Entrepreneurial graduates have also found that this kind of degree provides the ideal foundation when starting a business from scratch.

What do you need?

The majority of universities in the UK will determine your eligibility by looking at your UCAS points, which are calculated from your existing qualifications – these might be A-Levels, BTEC diplomas or any other level 3 achievements. Mature students may however find that their existing employment background is enough to qualify them for a place, even without these points, so it is always worth applying and highlighting your relevant experience.
