I’m applying for an MBA or MSc programme; how can I connect with Imperial College Business School? Which recruitment event should I attend? Would it be beneficial for me to join a webinar? Can I chat to current students? 

Engaging with staff, current or former students can provide you with detailed insight into what studying an MBA or MSc programme at Imperial College Business School might be like. Connecting with us in one way or another will also highlight your motivation and enthusiasm to study your chosen programme – always something we like to see! We offer many opportunities for you to form connections with us. Which way is right for you? We’ve put together this blog to help!

1. Come and say ‘hello’ at an online recruitment event

We attend a number of virtual postgraduate study fairs throughout the year across multiple locations and timezones, giving you a great opportunity to meet with representatives from the Business School across the globe.

We also hold information sessions online; these sessions give you the opportunity to speak with faculty, current students and alumni while learning more about our programmes. The webinars provide information and advice on a range of topics including the application process, how to apply for a visa and accommodation options in London. In addition, we also hold programme-specific webinars, primarily delivered by Programme Directors, who will be leading your potential programmes – these webinars provide much more detail on the content of programmes. For a full list of our upcoming webinars and details of how to register for these, click here.

For MBA programmes, we periodically hold Fast Track Admissions Days. These days allow you to have your admissions interview and accelerate your application if you are successful on the day. Please note: you will need to apply for these days in advance via our website as places are extremely limited.

2. Ask a Student Ambassador

Who better to talk to about studying our programmes than those currently studying them? Our helpful Student Ambassadors are available to answer any questions you may have about what it’s like to study our programmes and give insight into life as a student at Imperial College Business School. You can chat to our Student Ambassadors via the Unibuddy platform on our website. We have ambassadors for both our MSc and MBA programmes.

3. Join a virtual coffee chat 

Our virtual coffee chats have been designed to provide an informal atmosphere where you can ask questions to current students or alumni from your programme of interest. They are a great way to gain insider perspectives about studying at the Business School through causal conversation. Find out when our next virtual coffee chat is here.

4. Network with our alumni

Our past students are the best placed people to talk to about where an MSc or MBA programme at Imperial College Business School could take you career-wise. Currently, the best place to network with our alumni is through our Alumni Relations team or catching up at a coffee chat.

We hope you found the above information helpful. Don’t worry, you don’t need to connect with us in all the different ways we’ve cited above; however, you may find it helpful to engage with us in one or two of these ways. If you do decide to, we hope to connect with you soon!
