Hi

These subjects actually open the door to a lot of different types of roles. Common jobs include Human resources officer, Project manger, Office manager, and Business adviser.

Analytics is a big industry now, so things like Business Analyst, Data Analyst and Risk Manager are growing jobs at the moment.

You can find a more comprehensive list of roles related to qualifications on the Prospects 'what can I do with my degree' page.

In terms of how competitive these roles are and how many opportunities you'll find, you might want to look into some labour market information. This can tell you things like which areas of the country the most positions are for particular jobs and what the future looks like in terms of if it's becoming more or less popular.

Try looking up roles on the Career Smart website to learn more about this kind of thing

Hope this helps, best of luck.

From my understanding, it is quite a competitive field. Business and Economics degrees are very popular in terms of study at degree level. Of course, this means that in terms of jobs after uni, it is increasingly competitive. I think it might be a good idea to do a physics or engineering degree, as you could use this degree to go into the financial sector, and it leaves other career prospects open. Remember that we are moving into a generation where technology will take over a lot of jobs, so keep that in mind when you start to think about your further study.

I think business is a degree that can get you into any kind of field, you could go into construction, marketing, healthcare etc. Theres also a great number of graduate programmes you can do which means you are guaranteed a job at the end. It does get competitive but I believe it is a great degree to have.

I’m the total opposite. Unless you have a first, with some awards, from a top university, then the degree is FAR too generalised. You are doing a degree where you have no particular expertise in anything, just a general understanding. It would be far more effective to do work experience whilst completing the degree, really get an understanding of the precise sector you want to go into (I.e. business data analyst, risk manager, marketing, project manager, etc.) and then do a 1 year postgraduate course to give you a speciality.

If I’m a business hiring a data analyst, I’m going to look for maths or economics graduates, not someone with a general business degree that hasn’t actually ran a business in their life probably. Or I’d look at someone with a postgraduate certificate in data analysis, something like that.
