"The Sloan changed my whole perspective on how I see myself and what I am capable of doing"
We understand that hiring works differently at senior levels. On Sloan you’ll take part in a range of Career Centre sessions and empower yourself to create a strategic and meaningful career plan.
LBS Careers provides support in 4 ways:
Students choosing to enroll onto the LBS Sloan 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 one’ and 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.
During your time at London Business School, you will be given the opportunity to immerse yourself in the career and professional development programme, exclusively designed for Sloan Fellows. The programme involves a wide range of activities and consists of four interrelated components:
All 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.
As a member of our alumni community we hope that you continue to engage with us for your career development needs.
We run an annual programme of webinars, events and workshops to support you in your career and professional development. These cover a range of topics, from developing your personal brand to becoming a Non-Executive Director.
We provide access to a range of resources and also offer alumni the opportunity to work with a career coach.
