MSc Economics & Strategy for Business is a unique one-year, full-time programme which integrates strategic analysis with contemporary economics to prepare students for successful careers in consulting and finance.
Please note all figures refer to graduates who were seeking employment and shared employment data with us.
The Imperial College Business School Careers team was unlike any other and proved extremely helpful in not only providing a variety of employer events but also additional ways to navigate the recruitment process. One helpful technique they showed me which I had not learnt before, was the task of setting up a clear career trajectory to target specific firms and preparing specific documents for each.
Employment by sector
For those working in the finance sector, 37% are working in corporate or retail banking, 18% in investment banking and 10% in research and information services, with the others working throughout finance specialisations including asset and investment management, private equity, venture capital and hedge funds.
I benefited a lot from Careers, as they helped me with the recruitment process by setting up a career strategy, preparing me for interviews and they giving valuable advice on how to polish my CV and LinkedIn account.
Employment by region
Careers helped me to optimally prepare for the interviews and the whole recruitment process. I did not only attend workshops to learn the basics, but I also could get individual one-to-one appointments to work on my CV, cover letter, and prepare me for interviews and assessment centres. I think being prepared in that way really helped me to feel confident in my skills, which in the end enabled me to secure the job in the graduate scheme.
