UK business school graduates beat rivals to the top jobs

Graduates from British business schools are leading the way in finding jobs on completion of their degrees because they are well prepared for the work environment.

This is the view of Jonathan Slack, chief executive of the Association of Business Schools, who said that business schools paid extra attention to helping their students develop the "soft skills" which make them better prepared for work.

He commented: "There are criticisms from some employers that university leavers generally lack business awareness and soft skills such as team working, leadership and inter-personal communication. But these cannot be aimed with any justification at graduates of our business schools.

"We recognised long ago that employers want graduates who are ready from day one to make a significant contribution to their businesses."
