Gaining your Masters in business is a major achievement and greatly valued by employers. For some jobs, it's essential. For others, it gives you the competitive edge. It can accelerate your professional career, empower you to change vocation and give you the chance to study a subject you enjoy in depth.
But employers don't just need highly-qualified staff. They need adaptable graduates who excel in cross-cultural situations. They need managers and leaders with the confidence and ability to think for themselves.
At Essex Business School, we develop your decision making skills so you’re prepared to respond creatively, no matter the challenge. With us, you not only receive an education from a world-renowned business school, Social Science at Essex is ranked 4th in the UK for research excellence (REF 2014, mainstream universities, THE 2014); you learn in an international environment, in a prime UK location near London, and develop a global, ethical, business perspective. As an Essex graduate, you’ll have the courage to think differently and solve business problems, even in times of change.
"Doing a Masters gives you another year to gain internships and take advantage of employability opportunities. I gained a place on a graduate buying scheme at John Lewis Partnership. It’s a chance I wouldn’t have had if it wasn’t for my Essex Business School education and the extra-curricular opportunities I’ve been involved with.”
