Hi xanamsg,


Great question!

The Kent Business School (KBS) is a top 30 UK business school for academic teaching, student satisfaction and graduate employment prospects. Students who have graduated with a Business & Management degree have gone on to work for top organisations such as Deloitte UK, Deutsche Bank, HP, Disney, etc. The school itself also works closely with companies such as IBM and KPMG and gets professionals to come in and hold sessions to support students with their employability and career prospects regularly.

Business itself can be a very broad subject area and one thing I have enjoyed about this particular programme is that it allows you to explore a variety of subject areas in your first year, whilst giving you the flexibility to focus on a particular area in your second and final year if you wish to. Heres a link which will take you to the course structure page for your perusal. [LINK]

As part of the Business & Management degree, you will also have to undertake a Year in Industry (a placement) which has definitely been one of my biggest highlights during my time here. I had the opportunity to work as a Marketing Intern for an SME and was able to gain valuable business experience whilst also contributing to the company's successful from Day 1. Personally, I decided to enrol myself onto the programme because nowadays employers are looking for graduates with experience in the field so this will definitely help you to spice up your CV and leave a lasting impression when applying for graduate jobs later on. The Careers and Employability team are also super helpful when it comes to networking with employers and the whole application process to increase your chances of success!

Most of my friends have already found graduate jobs and will be going off to companies such as IBM, Enterprise Rent-a-Car, Grant Thornton, and EY after they graduate.. as for me, I'm hoping to do a Postgraduate degree. :smartass:

I hope this has answered your question. Feel free to pop me a message if you have any other questions about the course or University of Kent in general. Always happy to help.

Enjoy your day!
Phil
