I didn’t have any relevant work experience before studying at Imperial College Business School. I think it speaks volumes about Imperial’s reputation and our incredible Careers service that I was able to pass screening with most of my top choices including Facebook, Amazon, Uber, Google, Microsoft and LinkedIn.

One of the greatest opportunities that Imperial has provided me is being able to take the Luxury Brand Management elective at HEC Paris. Although the application process was very selective, it was rewarding, since I had the opportunity to have another strong brand on my CV, and to network with people that share similar interests with me.
