The University of Ulster Business School claims that people do not have to leave Northern Ireland in order to find graduate jobs.
According to the higher education establishment, there is an increasing desire among students to fast-track their MBA in order to gain the qualification - which can allow them to warrant a higher salary and make progress in the workplace.
Marie McHugh, head of the university's department of management, told the Belfast Telegraph the learning establishment has forged close links with businesses in Northern Ireland to help student find graduate jobs after studying.
She said: "We place a lot of emphasis on our relationships with employers and we are very keen to ensure that the graduates we produce have the knowledge and skills that make them very good candidates for the workplace."
The university has worked to ensure graduates have skills which businesses desire in their workplace, she added.
It was recently claimed that science students are not scared by the possibility of finding a graduate job after their studies have ended.
