Studying MSc Management at Imperial

Why did you choose to study MSc Management at Imperial College Business School?

I wanted to work on new ideas with people with different backgrounds and experiences. I wanted to add an academic stamp to my skills earned so far and there was no better institution than Imperial College Business School for its reputation and links to science and technology.

What is your fondest memory from your time at the Business School?

My fondest memory was the day our team pitched our Business Plan to some Investors during the Innovation course. It was a real ‘Dragons Den’ atmosphere in there and all of us where so passionate about our idea – I think everyone could feel it.

Career & Professional Development

How has the Business School helped develop your career?

After my programme I applied for a wide range of roles and companies. Especially in the corporate recruitment, HR really like to see candidates with international experiences and working in multicultural teams. However, Imperial College Business School helped one step further.

How did you benefit from the services provided by the Business School’s Career and Professional Development Services Team?

In defining what areas I like to work and finding out how to get there and setting the right goals. The Careers team really does a great job.

Alumni community

How do you stay connected with others from your Business School alumni network?

We are still all connected via social networks, but whenever one of us is back in London we try to meet up. I also just returned from a wedding in Greece where a former team mate invited the group. Fellow students became friends and it’s always fun to meet friends – so we are still connected quite well.

In what way is remaining connected to your alumni network important to you?

Recently I was asked to look at a Business Idea by current students. It was an honour to even be asked to look at smart ideas by passion driven people. For me it is really important to keep that network alive.

Advice to prospective students

What advice would you give to a prospective student considering studying here?

As always in life you should be open for change and new experiences. At your time at the School you should really focus on that, because you will take away so many things about yourself just because of working together with others.
