Graduate prospects and employment

HELBUS prepares students for the transition to their future careers through a curriculum that provides a strong practical skills base in addition to developing the requisite theoretical knowledge and understanding necessary to achieve success in global business. Having studied the Bachelor’s degree in English, students graduate well-equipped to use English in the real-world business environment and have a strong grasp of business terminology. Our students have a good track record of employability, with many achieving a flying start in their careers already after the second year of studies.

What are the professions that business graduates work in?

You can specialise in management, where you help companies create and execute strategies to reach their goals with the help of individuals and teams. If you study finance, you could help companies find ways to finance their investments, or invest their funds in productive assets. Studying human resource management will give you the understanding and tools to recruit the right people into the company, and improve the team work mechanisms and organisational structure in the company. Studying marketing will enable you to identify the needs of clients, resulting in product development and appropriate communication to the target market.

After graduation you may end up working in Finland or abroad, in the service, trade, industrial, or entertainment sector, in a small or large company, or perhaps in your own start-up.
