The 2007 MBA class also stands out as an entrepreneurial class with five per cent opting to start the own venture after graduation. 

Forty-six per cent of graduates have chosen jobs in the financial services sector with the largest proportion going into investment banking.  Global Industry attracted 31% of the 2007 MBA class while 23% have moved into Management Consultancy.

While the MBA programme attracted a student body comprised of 57 nationalities, almost 70% of graduates have chosen to stay and work in the UK.

Diane Morgan, Director of Career Services at London Business School said:

“We are thrilled that 2007 has been another strong year for our hugely talented MBA class with an impressive 97% receiving an offer of employment within three months of graduation which illustrates the appeal of our students to top recruiters worldwide.

London Business School students have continued to accept the very best positions across industry, finance and the consulting sectors all around the world; however it was apparent that London continues to be the hotspot for financial roles as demonstrated by close to 70% of the class choosing to work in London.”
