From the start of your MBA, you can receive bespoke advice from our career consultants. Through one-to-one coaching, our industry experienced consultants will work with you to clarify your aspirations and support you in your future career, jointly developing a winning employment strategy to take you to the next level and to open doors to a range of potential employers.
Group and individual activities to enhance your skills
Throughout your MBA, you will have the opportunity to be involved in group and individual activities aimed at helping you develop the skills and techniques to support you to achieve your career aspirations.
Some examples of the activities that you can undertake include online MBA profile building, industry specific networking events, Distinguished Leaders alumni seminars, mock assessment centre experience and video recorded interview practice.
Employers aren’t just looking for great qualifications. They want to see high-quality personal skills too, such as team working, leadership, presentation and interpersonal skills. Our Skills Development Consultant offers individual appointments to help you shape and hone these qualities.
Employer and Alumni engagement
During your MBA you will have the opportunity to engage with employees and alumni working at top international companies. Our MBAs have participated in a range of activities with employers including IBM, Accenture, Capgemini, Deloitte, Mondelez, Santander and HSBC.
End of Study Consultancy Projects
As you near the end of your studies, you will have the opportunity to apply for a three month work-based project starting in September. Projects will vary, but are likely to be with UK based companies who are seeking additional support with a particular aspect of their business. In previous years, this has included projects within IT, Marketing and Finance. This real life business experience will enhance your CV, providing you with evidence of consultancy skills and an entrepreneurial mind set.
