Dedicated support for every step of your MBA journey
Our graduates are among the brightest and the best, and are highly valued by our corporate partners.
The insights, experience and connections you gain on the Full-Time MBA will have a transformative effect on your career.
Imperial College Business School Careers provides world-class support, tailored to your own individual career aspirations and is an integral part of our Full-Time MBA programme.
At Imperial, you get assigned a Careers Coach, and I was assigned Andreia Ferreira who has been very helpful. She’s reviewed cover letters, CVs and sent me jobs that get sent to her inbox. The Careers service is great.
Personalised career support
Imperial MBA students are able to use Careers for one-to-one careers consultations, to talk about career plans, help you produce CVs and advise on interview techniques. We can also provide insights into companies and sectors. One of the benefits of maintaining a diverse and relatively small size cohort is that a great deal of work is done on a one-to-one basis, catering to your individual needs.
Personal Leadership Journey
Running throughout your time at the Business School, the Personal Leadership Journey will identify your own individual strengths and areas for development in terms of your leadership capability and professional effectiveness.
One of the benefits of maintaining a diverse and relatively small size cohort is that a great deal of work is done on a one-to-one basis, catering to your individual needs. Each MBA student is allocated a coach who they work with over the course of the year. They will need to meet with their coach at least once per term, but many opt to do so more regularly.
Your coach can work with you on any career related issue from helping you define your career strategy, CV cover letter reviews, mock interviews, through to negotiating offers. Your coach can also help you develop solutions for any leadership or personal development issues you may have. You may also choose to work with your coach on more self-reflection and self-awareness activity.
Your Careers support does not end when you graduate, you can continue to call upon our Careers Coach as an alumnus.
Every other month, a panel of MBA alumni visit the Business School to talk about their experience in a different sector. The alumni involved are happy to mentor current students and we encourage our Imperial MBA students to connect with them to start an informal mentoring relationship where they think there is a good fit for them.
We offer a range of workshops that will help you address the development needs identified in your Personal Development Plan such as:
- Networking skills
- Consulting interview techniques
- Presentation skills
- Public speaking skills
- Elevator pitches for business ideas and yourself
- Mock interviews and assessment centres preparation
Connecting with employers
Our Employer Relations team is responsible for building and developing sustainable relationships with top employers that our MBA students aspire to work for
We work closely with a number of large employers such as Amazon, Apple, Morgan Stanley, Dyson, McKinsey, LVMH, Kraft-Heinz, and JP Morgan, alongside small and medium sized firms and start-ups.
We host a small number of MBA specific company presentations and MBAs are often welcomed at Business School wide employer presentations, so will have the opportunity to network with different companies.
We have established partnerships with London-based and international organisations, offering you the opportunity to connect and network with some of the most forward-thinking companies in the world. An invaluable opportunity to meet employers before your interview.
The Business School supports a number of student-led career clubs which bring together students with similar areas of career interest and/or professional backgrounds.
Our MBA students are extremely involved in the career clubs, which provide them with extensive networking opportunities with students, alumni and other professionals. The clubs also allow them to build links with relevant employers in the sector and learn about the type of roles available and the skills needed.
The Business School has clubs aligned to the core industry sectors of Consulting, Energy & Sustainability, Finance, FMCG, Healthcare, Luxury and Retail, Social Impact and Technology & Media.
