    There's no need to state the uni bcause this question focuses more on the vourse subjects and which of the two are better for job prospects.

    I'd say the Uni does matter as two courses although similarly named, may differ in content.

    Regardless, if I can assume that you are yet to pick one of the two to study. That would mean that you are some way off graduating and who knows what the jobs market will be like next month, nevermind in 3/4 years time.

    Well.....actually it does matter about the uni because some have really strong specific courses.

    But in any case I would suggest either really - just go for what you're interested in because ultimately they've got quite similar sounding titles (although why anyone would willingly want to work in Human Resources is beyond me) and as DammitBauer said you won't be graduating for quite a few years so heaven knows what it'll be like then....plus imo in order to better your job prospects you really need to do an MA to get you ahead of the curve because every tom, **** and harry has a BA nowadays.

    Have you thought about doing a course with a less specific title? perhaps business or economics? keeping your options open would probably be the safest bet for you if you're unsure.

    Well if they were at the same uni with the same reputation for each course, my instinct would be Business Management would be better. I'm really not basing that on anything though to be honest, it's just my personal opinion on what course name gives me the best impression.

    But the universities do matter in reality, prestige does help.
