Issued: Fri, 13 Oct 2017 09:03:00 BST

The Accounting and Finance and Economics undergraduate programmes at the Adam Smith Business School have been ranked in the top three in the latest Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey.

This puts the School ahead of its Scottish and Russell Group  peer institutions in key categories.

For the number of graduates who go on to a positive destination (employment or further education), Economics is ranked 1st in the Russell Group, and 3rd in Scotland. Economics is also rated 2nd in Scotland for professional destinations (professional career paths).

Finance is placed 1st in Scotland and Accounting is rated 2nd in Scotland for professional destinations. For positive destinations, the Finance programme is rated 2nd in Scotland.

These results reflect the Business School’s commitment to creating a clear pathway to postgraduate study and employment by delivering high-quality research-informed and research-led programmes, enhanced by a range of opportunities for personal development and building graduate skills.

The School equips students to deal with real business situations and builds their employability through extra-curricular activities such as organising the annual Glasgow Economics Forum, taking part in global business case competitions and the ILM-accredited Performance Skills Programme.

The survey, which takes place every two years, provides information on the activities of students after they have left a higher education provider.  Data is collected through a survey carried out approximately six months after students qualify.
