Work with students
Inspire the next generation
Share your skills and knowledge with our current students. Mentoring, public speaking and providing informal support will reap benefits for the future generation of business professionals. And it is rewarding for you too.
Help shape our student experience in a variety of ways. You can be a guest speaker at a core class or elective course alongside an LBS faculty member, and talk at a student-led Club event. There are also opportunities to get involved with student treks and global business experiences outside London.
Mentoring is a great way to make a difference to a student’s future. You can mentor students across the LBS degree portfolio by providing structured support for them to learn and develop. The relationship can take place face-to-face or remotely.
“I have very much enjoyed mentoring, finding enormous value in the relationships I have forged along the way - both personally and professionally. LBS has a wonderful tradition of helping future generations, and I am so pleased to have played a part in giving something back.”
- Patrick Finney, MBA2006
You can advise on specific issues, based on your own areas of expertise and your own career transitions. You can also review CVs, offer interview tips and practice sessions, and facilitate recruitment opportunities and internships. You can conduct these sessions face-to-face and over email or Skype.

Could your company sponsor a student to work on a project for them? This is a great way to provide students with hands-on experience and adds incredible value to your company. You can either offer an internship or students could work on a fixed-term project, helping to solve a particular business problem.
Provide opportunities for our MiF students to work on finance business projects for you. MiFs are high-calibre finance professionals with an average of seven years' experience. As part of their programme, they can choose to work on a company-sponsored business project as a consultant. It could be any business issue centred on a financial situation, transaction or empirical research, and your company could be of any size or structure.
To find out more, contact Bryony Murdoch at email@example.com.
Most students on the MBA programme take advantage of an eight- to twelve-week paid internship at the end of the first year. This helps students put their first-year learning into action and gain an understanding of a particular function or sector that may be new to them. Students are able to inject their fresh perspectives, providing organisations with the latest thinking and ideas.
