I am set to start a Digital Technology Solutions degree at Warwick University this September. After I have finished my degree I intend to stay with the business and if I like it I intend to stay long term (10+ years). However in the future if I do move companies how attractive is a Digital Technology solutions degree and do both big and small companies hire people with them? Many thanks.

I would assume both big and small would employ you with that degree, Ik that microsoft, cisco, amazon, google, siemens all seem to do apprenticeships where the apprentice goes to do that degree so it must be fairly alright and after your first job its more gonna be focused around what ur employer has to say about you and stuff i think and the other qualifications u may have obtained during ur time working. e.g. Cisco CCNA, CCNP, Azure Certifications, AWS Certifications etc etc. it depends what ur job is and what job you'd be applying for i would say.

the work experience is more vaulable than the degree, since you wont be applying to grad schemes the work exp is far more important. based on where youre doing the degree, are you working at accenture/capgemini or a large tech firm? if so, your degree wont be what employers look at, it will be your work experience

After 10 years in employment your degree is basically irrelevant other than as a tick box exercise to check if you have one (I mean it's not even so different for graduate jobs, although grad schemes will look at your classification as another filter a bit more compared to senior roles with 10+ experience). What will make far more difference will be those 10 years of experience, how you present the work you have done in that time, what kinds of leadership roles you've undertaken, projects you've initiated, teams you've worked with (or built up!), etc, etc.
