Why a Business Degree Could be the Best Career Move

Business careers open up many doors, and pursuing a business-related degree will give you multiple options after graduation.

Whether at the undergraduate or postgraduate level, choosing the right career path can be difficult. If you’re not sure what to do, studying business management (or something more specialist such as marketing or supply chain management) could be the right move for you.

Almost anyone can benefit from a business course, and you can explore many different careers with a business degree. Here’s why it’s such a great career move!

You’ll learn transferable skills

Business degrees don’t always lead directly to business careers, not strictly speaking. The range of skills that you learn in a business management course provides an excellent foundation for any area of work.

Some of the most important skills you’ll learn to include time management and organisation, financial and commercial awareness, people management and communication skills, teamwork and collaboration, general administration skills, reporting and analysis, self-motivation, strategic thinking and problem-solving.

Not only are these highly desirable skills that all employers are looking for, but they are valuable skills that can positively impact your life in different ways.

Specialise in your chosen area

One of the best things about studying business at the University of Bolton is being able to choose your specialist area. Find general business management courses or programmes that focus on marketing, people management, retail and law.

This means you could launch a career in digital marketing and advertising, in HR or recruitment sales, in retail logistics and supply chain management, or working in legal departments for top brands.

Access a range of careers with a business degree

Graduates with business skills are always in demand, and always will be. This is because commercial knowledge and business acumen are vital to any organisation, and across every industry.

Business careers can take you to any sector you desire too, helping you penetrate even the most competitive of recruitment spaces, including fields like fashion, film and television, or sports! So if you have a specialist interest, a business degree could be the platform to help you get your foot in the door.

You could be your own boss!

As well as preparing you for the workplace, our degree courses also act as a catalyst for business careers in entrepreneurship. Have you always want to start your own company? Do you dream of launching the next big startup?

Startup careers with a business degree are more likely to be successful, thanks to the balance of practice and theory, and a solid understanding of what it takes to run a business. This includes the art of resource management, knowing how to interpret financial data, strategy development, critical thinking, and much more.

You don’t need specific A-Levels to apply

While some degree courses require specific subjects at A-Level (or equivalent), most undergraduate business courses do not. Any three A-Level subjects are accepted, meaning anyone with the right grades can apply.

Our courses are highly inclusive of people from all backgrounds. It doesn’t matter what you excelled in at school; business careers are for everyone.
