What does a Business Management degree lead to? Posted - 31/10/2017Back
Old Reedonians advise pupils at our FutureCareers Seminar.
There is such a wide and varied selection of business-related university courses that, sometimes, identifying the right degree can be a bit of a mine-field, let alone knowing if the skills learned can be applied to the world of work. To provide some complementary guidance to the pupils – over and above that which they receive at School – we were delighted to welcome back four Old Reedonian speakers for our FutureCareers Seminar.
Each having attended different universities and different courses, our guests were able to paint a rich picture of their journey from Reed’s to university to industry, imparting their advice and knowledge and offering some real-life examples of the relevance of a good business degree.
