Business and Management courses set you up well for a range of careers. 

The transferable skills you develop across your degree modules mean you're an especially ideal candidate for a role in Recruitment, Sales, and, of course, Management.

But whatever career you plan to pursue, it's good to have an idea of how highly employers view the university you studied at. 

The QS World University Rankings by Subject 2017 have been released - rating universities across the world in 46 individual subject areas. The rankings evaluate university courses overall using several factors, one of which is "Employer Reputation". 


They surveyed graduate employers across the world, receiving over 40,000 responses, to find out which courses have the highest employability rating. 


From their findings, we can see the top UK universities to study Business and Management - based on how positively employers view them for that specific subject area.
