Employability


Stirling is ranked 3rd in the UK for graduate employability with 97% of our graduates in employment, or further study, within six months of graduating. (HESA, 2016).

Additionally, the University has achieved a 5 star excellence award for Employability. (QS Stars, 2014)


At the University of Stirling Management School, we are committed to ensuring that every single one of our students realise their potential. 

The graduate job market has never been more competitive, and greater focus is now being placed on finding graduates who can demonstrate a wide array of skills, competences and experiences. Employers are looking for individuals who have taken full advantage of their university experience and have gone that ‘extra mile’.  

We support our students' personal and professional development through a variety of mechanisms such as our innovative Flying Start Leadership Programme, participation in the Study Abroad and Erasmus programmes, and regular employer-led skills workshops.  All of our activities are specifically designed to give students a significant advantage as they prepare for their transition into the workplace.  

The School is also very proud of its excellent links maintained with both its alumni and the business community.  These links not only offer our students the opportunity to learn from and network with a wide range of visiting speakers with years of industry experience, but also to take advantage of the company-based student projects, internships and graduate opportunities that are established through these connections. 

Many of the Management School’s students are active members of the University of Stirling Business Club which offers students the opportunity to learn about business, economics and finance in a fun and engaging way, as well as networking with like-minded individuals and representatives from the local business community.  

The School also works in partnership with the University’s Career Development Centre to provide students with the practical career management skills and advice required to prepare them for entering the graduate job market.
