Careers Clubs

Clubs and societies

The Business School supports a number of student-led careers clubs that bring together like-minded students with similar areas of professional interest.

We have clubs aligned to core sectors: finance; consulting; technology and media; FMCG, luxury and retail; energy; healthcare; sustainability; and social impact. The School also supports an Enterprise Club for students interested in entrepreneurship or family business.

Each club runs a number of events throughout the year, giving you the opportunity to build relationships with companies, learn from alumni and professionals and network with other students.

Companies that have presented at student-led events recently include BCG, EY, McKinsey & Company, HSBC, Microsoft, Google, Mitsubishi, Shell, Moët Hennessy, NFL, Visa and NHS England.

Wherever your interests lie, there’s a club for you. Alongside the Business School, Imperial College Union offers over 360 clubs, societies and projects – all are student-led and run.

"I’ve been elected as the President of the Consulting Club, Director of Partnerships at Imperial Launch and the Project Manager for the Imperial Consulting Group’s pro bono engagements. Outside of academics, I truly believe that these extracurricular experiences are the ones that shape our overall growth as a student and make us confident to start our professional journey."

Leadership and team building

Become a student leader and help us to improve the overall student experience by organising talks, conferences and networking events.

The Dean's Student Advisory Council brings together representatives of our 1,400 Business School students and our senior leadership team to examine how to improve our student community and society.

Together you will work to identify common challenges and opportunities across programmes, lead school-wide innovation and build a strong, cohesive community.

This day is an opportunity for leaders across Careers Clubs, the Dean’s Student Advisory Council and Student Ambassadors to team-up and make a difference. The day itself includes interactive leadership training and an introduction to the Business School mission: to have a positive impact on each other and society.

Feel passionate about your subject? Shape your own conference agenda. We give you the opportunity to bid and host your own conference to students and industry professionals.

"To hone my leadership skills and become involved with the wider Imperial community, I joined the LGBTQ+ and Allies Business Club as the Vice President. EDI is a personal passion, and this club gives me the perfect platform to express myself in this area of work. As a ROMBA Fellow, I am involved in events and activities put together by ROMBA to promote EDI in the Business School."

Entrepreneurship and innovation

Interested in starting your own business, consulting or leading on innovation? Imperial’s dynamic, enterprising culture provides a unique opportunity to develop the entrepreneurial, future-focused mindset needed.

Imperial Enterprise Lab

Supported and inspired by the Business School’s Innovation & Entrepreneurship Department, the Enterprise Lab connects students from all faculties across Imperial and maximises the impact of our dynamic, enterprising culture.

Whether you’re interested in starting your own business or becoming a force for innovative change within existing companies, the Imperial Enterprise Lab will help you develop an entrepreneurial mindset through real-word experience and access to the latest advice, cutting-edge research, events and activities, as well as student societies and competitions.

"I attended the Idea Challenge event. It was a great opportunity to network with our peers from other programmes and use our differing skills to combat a problem with unique solutions. I’m also involved in Imperial Launch, a pitching competition at the Business School in conjunction with the Enterprise Lab, working on the partnerships arm."
