Employers nowadays are looking for a wide range of subject knowledge, skills and experience. The BSc Business and Sociology degree at Aston offers exactly that, with a variety of modules to choose from to suit my interests while maintaining a broad academic viewpoint, as well as offering a valuable opportunity to complete a Placement Year in the industry.
For me, the best part so far was getting a chance to work for one of the most successful multinational companies in the world, McDonald's, and developing my skills in a real business environment, as well as meeting some great people along the way. Placement year has definitely given me an edge in the graduate job market and a great foundation for my future career.
Since graduating I was offered a job in the Reputation and Employer Branding department at McDonald's headoffice as a Reputation Officer.
