All of that and more is available in a programme with excellent success helping our graduates pivot into the roles they want.

Sessions can be in-person or virtual and help champion and promote the proven benefits of a diverse and inclusive business culture.

The Employability Conference

The Employability Conference is all about developing your network. This is not a recruitment fair (remember, we work with you individually on your career strategy, so passive recruitment fairs are not the ideal tool for MBAs).

This is an opportunity to learn from industry experts in a variety of sectors and understand how your experience prior to the MBA, coupled with your skills and knowledge development on the programme, can be combined into an effective career narrative.

What are employers looking for? The Employability Conference will help you find out so that your career strategy can be targeted to your sector of choice, here are some examples previously included:

  • Finance
  • Consulting
  • Energy
  • Entrepreneurship

Project support

Your MBA offers a number of opportunities to work directly with industry. Depending on the coursework in each year, and the electives you choose, you may work on anywhere from one to three different projects to hone your consultancy skills.

Your careers team will help find companies for Strategic Leadership consultancy projects, the Consultancy Challenge, and your Final Project. Whether you are developing a business plan or analysing data for your final project, you will work with companies like:

  • Amazon
  • NatWest
  • NHS

Putting into practice everything you have learned on the MBA.
