Have you ever wondered how to get into a career in business? The UK offers world-class business related studies and work experience to help you kickstart your career. Read on for three ways to get your career in business off to a great start.

  1. Study business related degrees at university

Studying a business related subject at university can be an excellent first step towards achieving your dream career. There are a whole range of business related degrees, from International Business to Finance, Business Entrepreneurship Development to Investment Analysis. The UK has some of the most highly sought after degree programmes in this field and as an international business and finance hub, it offers fantastic opportunities.

These include Accounting and Finance, Human Resource and Business Management – and many more in the business and entrepreneur sector.

  1. Further your career with business experience

Many students find it valuable to take part in placements while they study. Not only does it give them the opportunity to apply their learning in the workplace, it also gives them a chance try out particular roles or sectors to see if it’s the right path for them. Many employers also value workplace experience, so it can be beneficial later on when looking for employment.

Aston University has strong links to a number of industry-leading companies and offers a wide range of work experience and placements to students during and after completion of their studies. It offers internships and insight experiences so you can apply your learning in the workplace as you study, in your holidays, and benefit from workplace connections after you complete your programme. The university also supports students in taking a placement year, enabling you to get invaluable experience in your business related field.
