What do Cambridge graduates do?

The top three sectors that Land Economy Cambridge graduates joined were Banking & Finance (circa 22% of those who responded), followed by Property related roles (15%) and then Consultancy (8%). Of course many students continue on to further study (circa 15% of the most recent survey) and this may be something that you want to consider.

Will employers want my degree?

The majority of employers that recruit Cambridge graduates do not require a certain degree. They are usually more interested in what you can do rather than what you have studied. Take a look at the wide range of roles and companies that graduates join from a Land Economy degree. Try looking for ideas for help with identifying your personal strengths and preferences. Then search Handshake for internships, jobs or graduate schemes you are interested in. Note the selection criteria that usually focus on "competencies” rather than having studied a certain subject and see which ones are a good fit.

Using my degree

Land Economy graduates who want to use their degree often think about working in real estate, financial services, investment, consulting, environment and public sector to name a few. Be aware that all of these sectors have a wide variety of roles. For example real estate could be investment focussed, property development or management. So if you are interested in a certain sector think about what you are good at and which roles might be a good fit for you. Network with alumni who studied Land Economy. The Real Estate and Property job market is a small and well networked area, so making contacts is crucial.
