Careers and employability

Our graduates have a wide range of career opportunities available to them. They develop a strong mix of business-orientated skills during their studies.

Manchester's thriving leisure and cultural sector - with its lively music scene, famous sports venues, and impressive arts offering - makes it an ideal place to study and kick-start your career.

We're one of the most targeted universities by the UK’s top graduate employers (Graduate Market in 2019, High Fliers). Our Careers Service makes it easy for you to find jobs and internships around the city and beyond.
