Business and leisure
Business and leisure graduates can be found in a wide range of professions.
The national annual report 'what do graduates do?' shows you what graduates from Business and Administrative subjects went on to do.
Graduates from business and leisure may be united by a particular interest in business management and often there are certain jobs that might appeal, such being an office manager, an events organiser, a marketing executive, or even self employment. However there are lots of other possibilities as about 60% of graduate jobs are open to graduates from any discipline, so graduates can also be found in other contexts such as social care and art and design. There is a database of graduate jobs on the prospects website where you can look up different kinds of jobs and find out about entry requirements, pay scales, training and where to find work.
Also on the prospects site is a range of information sheets for different subject areas outlining potential career options related to those subject areas. The following information sheets may be particularly interesting to graduates from business and leisure:

- Hospitality, Leisure, Travel and tourism.
- Sport and Recreation, Health and Fitness, Outdoors, Playwork and Caravanning Industry.
- Food and Drink Skills Council
- The Financial Skills Partnership also offers information and advice about careers in the financial sector.
