Yes. We have relationships with a wide range of top-tier financial institutions and corporates who are looking for finance talents from LBS. Many firms will conduct recruitment activities via presentations or networking events to engage with MBA and Masters in Finance students. You can find details on the employers who hired MiF students in the past in the Employment Reports section.
Whether for internships or full time jobs, there are typically two different paths MiFs follow in recruitment - structured recruitment and direct hire recruitment. Companies who want an ongoing, existing pipeline of mid-career students have structured “Associate / Finance Leadership Programmes.” Because they can plan ahead for their business needs, these roles tend to be more visible and competitive. The route to getting a structured internship is more predictable but the timing is less flexible.
Student may also pursue direct hire recruitment. These are roles offered throughout the year when a business need arises. Some are advertised and in addition there are many “hidden” or unadvertised opportunities. They are driven by your networking efforts, offer flexibility and recruitment happens closer to the actual start date.
