A bachelor in management is one of the more versatile business degrees out there, meaning management graduates are highly sought-after for their broad knowledge and awareness of business and business-related areas, including economics, finance, marketing and people management.

As a result, there are several career paths you can pursue with a bachelor in management, including business advisory and business development, management consultancy, and project management. But if the world of business and finance isn’t your first choice, here are some other highly rewarding career paths you may want to consider pursuing with a management degree.  

Chief Marketing Officer

A chief marketing officer’s main duties include the planning, development, implementation and management of a coordinated marketing and advertising strategy campaign in order to promote a product/service and drive profits.

This is an exciting role involving numerous managerial, analytical and creative tasks, such as: conducting in-depth market research to stay ahead of emerging trends and industry developments, meeting targets, producing reports, as well as managing budgets, teams and resources.

Chief marketing officers have to constantly broaden their knowledge and understanding of the latest trends and technologies to better serve consumers’ expectations. For this reason, having good commercial awareness, sounds business knowledge and communication skills, as well as being adaptable and resilient, is vital to succeeding in this role.

While this is role requires industry experience to build a solid career path, a degree such as the ESCP Bachelor in Management (BSc) helps students to acquire the key skills through business simulations and real-life cases.

Event Director

Event directors are responsible for the successful execution and management of a variety of business and social events – from weddings to charity fundraisers and corporate conferences.

This is a hands-on role that demands the ability to think fast, be adaptable and well-organized, manage a dynamic team, budget finances, a strong commercial awareness and above all else – offer outstanding customer service skills.

The skills and knowledge acquired in a bachelor in management are especially helpful in gaining a head start in this field. At ESCP Business School, students are regularly involved in group work, such as Collective Projects and Social Impact Projects, where they learn how to work in teams, assign tasks and monitor progress – much like what’s expected in the real world of events management.

Luxury Travel Manager

This is an exclusively client-facing role where you can combine your passion for travel with managerial knowledge and expertise.

As a private luxury travel manager, it’s your job to offer the highest level of customer care at all times to your clients when it comes to taking responsibility for designing and curating bespoke holidays around the world. Exceptional attention to detail, up-to-date knowledge of market trends, and an excellent network are imperative should you want to pursue a career as a luxury travel manager.

Prior experience is necessary, but a relevant degree such as the Bachelor in Management (BSc) can help you gain a solid foundation of business knowledge in terms of sales, finances, and the management of resources. The program also allows students to live and study with their international peers in three different European campuses throughout their studies, thus developing their intercultural perspectives and interpersonal management skills.

Public Relations Officer

If you are resilient and adaptable, then a role in public relations could be ideal.

Public relations officers carry out a wide range of tasks and duties, including the planning, creation and implantation of public relations strategies and press releases, organizing press conferences and events, as well as fostering positive relations between the community, key spokespeople and the media.

ESCP Business School management graduates may find themselves well prepared for a career in these roles as the program provides myriad learning opportunities at the forefront of management across a wide range of industries and sectors.

Corporate Social Responsibility Manager

Another rewarding career that is gaining increasing international attention is in the corporate social responsibility area.

As companies become more aware of their ethical, sustainable and environmental practices, corporate social responsibility managers oversee the creation and implementation of a company’s social responsibility strategy and objectives – for example, looking at ways to reduce the company’s carbon footprint emission.

If the company’s corporate social responsibility initiative is met, this can boost customer loyalty, brand trust, as well as increase long-term profits of the company.

ESCP Business School champions sustainable development and actively promotes the principles of ethics, responsibility, and sustainability in all areas of the school.

Be your own boss and start your own business

Have you got an entrepreneurial instinct? While being your own boss and starting up your own business venture comes with its challenges, many who go on to become successful entrepreneurs enjoy the independence that comes with working for yourself and hiring a team who are just as passionate, keen and dedicated to your business as you are.

During the three years of the Bachelor in Management at ESCP Business School, students put theory into practice during internships and social impact projects, and are better equipped with the expertise and in-demand skills needed to manage and lead teams and projects effectively.

It’s a great starting point for those who want to get a good idea of what it’s like to work and manage a team, while bringing visions and concepts to life.
