Career opportunities

The University has its own dedicated  Careers Service  that you would have full access to as a student and for two years after you graduate.  

At Manchester you will have access to a number of   opportunities to help boost your employability  . 

Examples of jobs recent management graduates have gone onto include audit graduate, HR graduate analyst, internet consultant and management trainee. 

 A wide range of companies employ our management graduates, including Balfour Beatty, Deutsche Bank, KPMG, Microsoft and Tesco. 

Management graduates have also gone onto further study in business, economics, enterprise and branding at institutions across the UK and internationally, including London Business School, the University of Jiao Tong and the University of Lausanne. 

A degree in Modern Languages and Cultures paves the way for a broad range of careers.  

You'll develop intercultural awareness and enhanced communication skills - both highly valued by employers.  

You'll also acquire transferable expertise at the very heart of language learning, including enhanced powers of perception and interpretation and advanced decision-making and multitasking skills. 

You'll develop independence and self-confidence during your residence abroad, and your intercultural communication skills will make you a strong contender for media, journalism and PR roles. 

Many of our graduates go straight into business services, marketing, advertising, management, banking or communications.  

Others pursue postgraduate study or further vocational training to become accountants, lawyers, teachers (both in the UK and overseas) or to enter the Civil Service. 

The University of Manchester is the most targeted university in the UK for top graduate employers (High Fliers Research, 2019). 

Employers who have taken on our Arabic Studies graduates in the past include Santander, RBS, the British Army, Virgin Atlantic, UK Islamic Mission, Amnesty International, and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
