The diverse class, which was the School’s largest class to date, compromised 144 students from 38 countries. 40% of graduates took up roles in the highly competitive consulting sector, which has been a consistent trend for the School. 32% went into finance and 28% took up a job in the corporate sector, where media and entertainment was one of the most popular destinations.
The best paid graduates earned up to £68,937. On average the salaries were £33,000, which is 74% higher than wages of other first degree graduates, according to the Higher Education Statistical Agency (HESA). Partly this success derived from the School’s presence in the international market and its new ‘Global Immersion Trip’, as well as partnerships with the Stockholm School of Economics and the IE Business School in Madrid. London Business School also looks forward to adding two more trips to Paris and Brussels this academic year.
“We work closely with employers, alumni and the wider School to equip our Masters in Management graduates with the leadership skills, business knowledge and global perspective to excel”, so one explanation of the School’s success by Fiona Sandford, Executive Director, Careers and Global Business. “MiM graduates have also benefited from exposure to potential employers through our dedicated career week and workshops. 70% of this year’s graduates met their employers through London Business School’s Career Services, alumni or networking and club events.”
