MAKING IT IN BUSINESS AND MANAGEMENT


B


usiness and management education delivered by ABS members continues to be the most popular single subject of study for students in UK universities. From the latest data (2007/08 HESA), 1 in 7 of all students were studying business and management. This represents 234,000 full- time equivalent (FTE) students at all levels of Higher Education: from Foundation Degree, through traditional three and four year undergraduate courses, specialist Masters, MBAs and Doctorates.


Employers are looking for the key skills including communication, analytical and research abilities, good interpersonal skills and increasingly an awareness of sustainability practices for businesses and research.


So whether you want to work in management consultancy, local government, charity or for any other business, skills from a business management course will place you in a good position to get a job and build a career.

Cakes ‘The course really helped me with starting up my business, from the accounting, to the IT aspects, marketing plans and manufacturing processes.’ Laura Draper graduated from BA (Hons) International Business, Finance and Economics in 2005 and now owns her own business in Didsbury - the Airyfairy Cake Boutique.


Why did you choose to study your chosen course?


I chose IBFE as it was a really varied course, studying modules from Business Reporting through to Marketing and everything in between. I felt this would give me really good all-round knowledge and be transferable.


What factors made you choose Manchester Business School? I chose Manchester Business School at The University of Manchester as it was the only university offering IBFE and I’ve also always loved Manchester as a city as there’s so much to do.
