Career Centre provides support in four ways:
All EMBA students have access to all that the Career Centre has to offer. Most of the workshops and resources apply whether you are looking for new roles or wishing to enhance your progress within your own organisation. For students wanting to move onwards and upwards in their own organisation, our career acceleration tools and techniques are particularly relevant.
Each year, Career Centre invite all EMBA students to bring their supporting employers to a summer breakfast as a thank you for their support, whether this is financial or otherwise. They will get to network with each other and experience a thought-provoking talk from one of our world-class faculty.
Students choosing to enrol onto the LBS EMBA are experienced executives reaching the peak of their career, each with a unique profile.
Working with a dedicated Career Lead, students can plan their individual career strategy. Some will hope to change their career path; others will want to move industry; some may experiment with entrepreneurship, while some will leverage the programme learning to accelerate their career within their current organisation.
At executive level we understand that you are in the leagues of being the ‘expert’, and that hiring works differently at this senior level. For this reason, the emphasis is not on recruitment, but rather on empowering you to plan your own individual career progression strategy, working with you to craft your personal story and target organisations where you could add value.
When companies recruit at executive level, they usually seek a specific profile of experience, personality and fit for their organisation. Only a handful of candidates will meet their criteria and they will not use structured business school recruitment as a means to find them (as is typical for MBA hiring). For senior positions, recruiters do not limit their search to business schools.
Career Centre focuses attention on helping individual students develop a strong personal brand, effective self-marketing tools, and a clear job search strategy to enable them to secure conversations with organisations who will value their particular profile.
Your career goals are unique and you are in the driving seat when it comes to planning your career journey. Whether your aim is to accelerate your career within your existing organisation, by identifying fresh or global responsibilities, make an external career transition, or pursue an entrepreneurial venture, the Executive MBA can equip you with the knowledge and networking opportunities to take ownership of your career with conﬁdence.
