"The networking opportunities here are unreal. While it's ultimately up to you to take full advantage, leveraging the Imperial brand has paid off for me in more ways than I can count. Whether it's finding an internship at an Imperial startup or collaborating with students outside the Business School on hackathons, there are so many brilliant minds that you can tap into. For incoming students, I'd highly recommend going out of your comfort zone to expand your network beyond the scope of the Business School; I can guarantee that you won't regret it."
