The UK has been a pioneer in innovation, research and business-related education for many decades. Thanks to this, working in the UK after studying business is very interesting and rewarding. The emphasis is placed on strategic rather than tactical perspective, which makes the graduates of British universities comprehensively prepared and more competitive also in the European labour market. Business studies give much more than just a diploma – they also develop the so-called soft skills (communicativeness and ability to work in a group, time management, self-presentation or delegating tasks, etc.), which are often even more attractive for the employer. Many of them emphasise that which matters to them, which is your knowledge and experience, and not the “paper” from a particular university or faculty.

University Requirements for business courses
As far as entry requirements are concerned, most universities do not require any specific baccalaureate subjects. So you can apply for a Business Programme with Matura in a Polish language, history or biology baccalaureate. If you don’t have the Matura exam, you can also apply for studies! You will need to document two years of employment in the UK though!
It seems that studying business in the UK is a great option for a variety of students – whether they are science-minded, humanist or people-oriented. Businesses of all kinds permeate all aspects of our lives and their role will only increase in the future. Qualified specialists will therefore be even more needed.
