    Hello

    In your CV, how do you properly write your degree? Say you got a first class degree in business management from southampton university or whatever. How do you that put onto paper?


    Education (example)

    First class honours degree Business management
    Southampton University 2000-2003

    It's seems a little tacky, how do you make it more professional? Isn't there some nice acronyms you can use?

    Something like that, perhaps? Don't worry too much about it.

    Cheers for that. But I want to worry, because I want it to look professional.

    BA stands for bachelor right? What does BSc stand for and why should I put both?

    BA = Bachelor of arts
    BSc - Bachelor of science

    You only need to put whichever one you got.

    Where have I mentioned that I have got a first class degree?

    But I'm very happy that I have amused you

    But since you seem like such an intelligent gentleman yourself, please feel free to tell me how to write it properly. (you can change the first class degree to any degree you like)

    What acronym do you put for bachelor of business?

    Which university, I'm guessing its just a normal Business Studies degree in which case it could be either a BA or a BSc depending on the course.

    Simply listing the bare-minimum information may not do justice to the time, money and effort you have dedicated to earning your degree! Therefore, it is recommended to elaborate on your studies in relationship to the relevant and/or significant:

    • Modules;
    • Projects, and;
    • Dissertation information.
