Graduates will be well placed to enter the Government Economic Service, especially in the more business-facing departments of government. They'll also be well qualified for positions in economic consultancies or trade and representative bodies such as the CBI, as well as in industry and commerce.
Most graduates are likely to gain employment in positions where their degree knowledge is valuable but not essential. So all sectors of the economy are potentially available (including self employment).

A significant number of graduates are likely to progress to further study (most likely a one-year Masters degree) before seeking employment.
