I wanted to get an MBA because I was looking to pivot my career. I’ve always been interested in retail, and specifically, sustainable womenswear. Imperial College Business School was the perfect fit because as a primarily STEM institution, I knew I would be able to use most of my technical background in a business setting.

My careers consultant was a great personal mentor in encouraging me, making great suggestions, challenging my decisions and sense checking my MBA plan. I was also fortunate enough to be part of the Imperial Enterprise Lab Discovery Fund programme which has helped me with regards to customer discovery, business modelling and has greatly expanded my network.

The industry-specific events run by Careers helped me understand what type of jobs are open to someone with my skillset and which companies hire MBA graduates. In the first months of my MBA, my Career Consultant really helped me to hone into what it is that I want to do, and I’ve been lucky enough to already have a job offer for a well renowned MBA graduate programme. I never thought I’d have a job offer this early, but it means I can now focus on other things like entrepreneurial ventures for the rest of the year.
