Find out more on our Careers and Professional Development page.In an increasingly competitive job market, our degrees can give you the knowledge and skills you need to succeed. We also give you lots of extra opportunities to increase your chances of a graduate job. 

Our Leaders in Residence programme gives all management students the opportunity to explore and develop their leadership skills, by engaging with senior figures from the world of business.

You will have the opportunity to connect with leaders from major manufacturers and retailers, charity chief executives, entrepreneurs and directors of companies large and small, through structured contact as part of the programme.

Through workshops, mentoring sessions, guest lectures and professional skills development, these established business people will help you connect the theory of your course to real world practice, and offer their advice for career success.

Chu Cheng Wu, Corporate Banking Management Associate, DBS Bank

The MSc Management course focuses not only on theories but also on practical experience, and group discussions and presentation assignments shaped both my hard skills and soft skills helping me to succeed in the assessment centre. My best achievement from my time at Leeds was getting a job before the second semester started.
