Relevant work experience is more important than ever in the increasingly competitive labour market. The 2015 High Flyers report found that the top UK Graduate Employers make 31% of graduate job offers to students who have previously done a work placement with them (up from 26% in 2010).
There are a number of options to complete a placement as part of your Business Degree including:
- With Industrial Experience placement
- Business Experience module
- BSc Business placement (Penryn Campus, Cornwall)
- Study Abroad
- MBA projects
As for after my degree, my year in industry will hopefully set me apart from other graduates who have only done a three-year course – proving you can work in a business and having a strong reference from a good company is vital in showing you are ready to go straight into a graduate job.
