British Airways - Graduate Programmes British Airways have managed to fly ahead of the chasing pack and hold onto the title for a second week. The various programmes by the international and prestigious airline are proving to continue to be popular. Maybe it's the weather but graduates are flocking to the schemes that could see them jetset around the world. The schemes include Leaders for Business, Finance, Engineering, Operational Research, Procurement, IT (Software Engineer and Infrastructure Engineer), Human Resources, Commercial Analyst, and Cargo. Despite the broad range, BA have the luxury to be extremely picky with the graduates they take on. They need at least a 2:1 and the ability to work and communicate quickly and capably.
