Business Graduates In Great Demand

The University of Warwick's status among employers has risen further, according to a recent survey.

Figures published today show that graduates from Warwick Business School are being snapped up by blue chip firms.

The poll of employers’ favoured universities placed Warwick second to Manchester University for recruiting students into business management.

University spokesman Peter Dunn said the figures moved Warwick up one place from last year’s table to its highest-ever position.

He said the annual Graduate Recruiters Survey put the university into a “virtuous circle”.

Mr Dunn said:

“Nowadays students are a lot more concerned about what kind of job they are going to get when they leave university.

“They see things like this and it makes them want to come to Warwick as they will be able to go into a highly-paid job with a blue chip firm.”

More than 3,300 students from 70 different countries are on the 17 different degree courses run by the Business School.

Mr Dunn said the news would also help attract employers to fund the Business School.

He said:

“It already attracts £3.5 million a year, but if the employers see that the best graduates are coming from Warwick then they are more likely to take an interest in them.”

Universities that came behind Warwick in the poll included Cambridge, Oxford, LSE and Birmingham.
