To succeed in a competitive job market, you need employability skills to complement your degree.
When you study at the Aberystwyth Business School (ABS) we will work with you to make sure that you are fully equipped with the skills and experience to start a great career.
Aberystwyth University also offers long-term work experience opportunities to seriously boost your CV. The Year in Employment Scheme (YES) involves a paid year in employment in between your second and third years of study, a fantastic opportunity to find out more about a possible career while earning a wage.
We have the Employability Skills for Professionals module, allowing our third-year students the opportunity to get work experience with leading and local Public and Private Sector employers as a credited module that can be taken during semester time alongside their other modules.
We also recommend you join the Business School student-led Business Society or the Economics Society for more work experience opportunities as well as a chance to discuss business and management matters with like-minded people in an informal setting.
We are very proud of the success enjoyed by students and Graduates of the Aberystwyth Business School. Please consult the links below to read about the experience of our students.
