The main piece of advice I would give is to be completely open-minded and willing to change your opinions or interests. The programme provides you with plenty of different inputs that can make you realise you are much more interested in a topic than you previously thought (which may lead to a change in your main career goals or the kind of job you would like to do). In my opinion, this is very positive because it helps you learn about yourself and to pursue a career that you will really enjoy.

Imperial College Business School Careers are phenomenal. You can book an unlimited number of CV/cover letter/LinkedIn profile review sessions in-person or over Skype, and I was able to have several hour-long interview sessions with industry experts once an interview had been confirmed. I can’t imagine any better support anywhere.

The programme is highly multi-disciplinary. I came to it with the idea of specialising in the energy sector. However, the more I learned, the more career paths in the climate change movement and sustainability industry I started to explore. It has been challenging to choose and focus in one particular issue given so much is interconnected. Being willing to learn more about new careers paths and business sectors is key in order to succeed in the Master’s and to make the most of the business school experience.
