I found my one-on-one coaching sessions with my Careers Consultant highly valuable and recommend future MBA students to take full advantage of this support. I used the coaching feedback extensively to develop where I wanted to go as a future leader and how I could best springboard forward from the MBA.

The networking opportunities are literally endless. The programme is so much larger than just the cohort. The entire Business School is bustling with people to meet, not to mention the alumni network that is always up for coffee chats and answering questions. Then there are the companies that come on campus that are familiar with Imperial’s calibre and are very interested in Imperial students.
