What can I do with...

...a business degree?

Confused about your career options? This neat little tool helps you find out exactly what you can do with your business degree.

Sectors

 

Having chosen to do a business degree, you might believe that you’re destined to spend your life in boardrooms, arguing, pointing angrily, throwing teacups at the wall and making monumental business decisions from the comfort of your leather throne. However, a business degree will actually provide you with an excellent platform from which to enter a range of interesting sectors...

Skills

 

Your head might be crammed full of useful (and some not-so-useful) information, but your business degree will also help you to develop a wealth of useful skills…

Commercial Awareness

You know the business world like the back of your hand. You can look at situations from a commercial perspective and use your business know-how to influence success.

Communication (Oral)

All mouth, no trousers? Nope, but you can speak to people in a calm, concise and engaging manner.

Communication (Written)

You may not be a romantic poet, but you can write in a professional, succinct and appealing fashion.

Data Handling

You can compile, organise and analyse data. Qualitative data? Quantitative data? It doesn’t matter. You’ve got it nailed.

Independence

You don’t need somebody holding your hand the entire time. You can work on your own, use your initiative and keep yourself motivated.

Leadership

You’re a shepherd, not a sheep. You can lead from the front and take charge when decisions need to be made.

Negotiation

Articulate, methodical and composed, your negotiation skills are top-notch. You could even give Barry Obama a run for his money.

Numeracy

Forget 2 + 2 = 4, you’ve got the numeracy skills to give Carol Vorderman a run for her money.

Problem Solving

You’re a bit like Jimmy McNulty in The Wire. You might swear a lot, but you can solve problems quickly and logically without too much head-scratching.

Research

Like a pig sniffing for truffles, you have the ability to get your head down and find exactly what you’re looking for: useful information.

Teamwork

You’re not an angry loner. Far from it! You have the ability to work effectively as part of a team.

Time Management

You may not have ‘Bernard’s Watch’, but you can manage your time effectively and meet deadlines without any last minute stress.

Occupations

 

Like any successful business magnate, you should have a pretty strong idea of what you want to achieve by now. If you’re not quite there yet, though, check out the different roles you could secure with your business degree…
