Their dedication and drive to succeed is admirable and they fully deserve this prestigious ranking. It is also a reflection on the high quality of teaching they receive at the university.”

Greenwich’s business students are focused on entering good careers after they have completed their studies, according to Jon Sibson, Pro-Vice Chancellor of the university’s Business School. “We know that the Business School produces excellent graduates. It is good news that so many employers are recognising this,” he says. “We go the extra mile to support students, helping them find placements and internships, giving practical advice on writing CVs and preparing them for assessment centres and interviews.”

Greenwich's business courses give students a range of career opportunities and the skills to set up their own companies.
