Ninety-six per cent of this year’s Masters in Management (MiM) graduates from London Business School secured employment within three months of completing the programme, according to figures released today.
Fiona Sandford, Executive Director, Careers and Global Business, London Business School, explained the School’s success: “In a competitive job market it is important for our MiM graduates to stand out from the crowd. We work closely with employers, alumni and the wider School to equip our MiM graduates with the leadership skills, business knowledge and global perspective to excel.
“MiM graduates have also benefited from exposure to potential employers through our dedicated career week and workshops. Most of this year’s graduates met their employers at London Business School’s Career Services, alumni or networking and club events.”
Of the diverse class, which comprised 160 students from 42 different nations, the largest class to date, 33% took up roles in the consulting sector and 39% went into finance – a 7% increase on the 2012 class. 28% took up posts in the corporate sector including TMT, energy and consumer products, with 7% accepting roles in consumer products, a 4% increase from last year.
Graduates accepted roles around the world. Their average starting salary was £36,729.

London Business School’s presence in the international market has continued to grow as a result of the MiM’s Global Immersion Trip where students visit global cities to network with peers, visit leading academic institutions and companies and attend lectures. Shanghai, the most recent addition to the Global Immersion Trip, will focus on business and finance in China.
