DLHE2017-Outcomes DLHE2017-Prospects

Annual figures from the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education have shown further success for Management School graduates.

Of our most recent UK undergraduates to enter the labour market, 87% are engaged in activities for which a degree is essential, a three per cent growth on last year’s results. This figure also demonstrates a 10% jump over three years in this area*.

Merryn McGregor, Employability Manager at the Management School, said: “We’re very satisfied with the 2015/16 results. It’s reflective of our ongoing commitment to building the employability of our students.”

The survey also reports 96% positive outcomes for our students, which relates to graduates in any positive activity six months after graduation.

Associate Dean for Learning and Teaching, Dr Robert Wapshott, said: “These are very encouraging figures, testament to the hard work of Merryn and her team. The School’s Employability Hub goes from strength to strength and its ongoing efforts are mirrored by the success of our graduates in a competitive market.”
