Our careers team work exclusively with MS&I students to enhance their employability, provide tailored individual careers support and facilitate connections with employers globally. This is an essential complement to our academic programmes, enabling us to best prepare our students for their future careers and support them to identify and achieve their goals. We have a team of 4 Career Consultants, 1 Employer & Alumni Engagement Manager and 2 Employer & Alumni Engagement Officers.
Alongside the MS&I wide careers events and initiatives detailed below, there is also programme specific careers support. Please refer to individual programme pages for these details.
Working closely with a broad range of employers from all sectors, we organise a programme of activities designed to maximise opportunities for our students to network and build strong connections with employers. Our students participate in activities which allow them to develop a highly competitive skillset, and strong and current commercial awareness.
As part of the dedicated employer engagement programme, our students enjoy exclusive access to:
- Industry Insight Sessions
- Employer led business games and skills sessions
- Employer presentations
- Employer led CV checking, mock interviews and mock assessment centres
- Employer involvement in academic teaching
- Access to the wider employer activity programme organised by UCL Careers
Employers who have previously participated in the department’s programmes
The UCL Department of Management Science & Innovation is keen to maintain strong ties with its alumni community. Our first MS&I Alumni Networking Evening Reception took place on Monday 24th March 2014 and was a great success with over 140 alumni, current students and faculty staff in attendance.
Thanks to Gizem Topoglu (MSc Management 2011), Business Analyst at M&G Investments, Paul Varga (MSc Technology Entrepreneurship 2013), Co-Founder & CEO of Playbrush, James Windsor (MSci Information Management for Business 2014), European Corporate Foreign Exchange Sales at Barclays and Blaga Milosheva (MSc Management 2013), Head of Resourcing at The Financialist Academy for giving such engaging updates on their lives since leaving MS&I, and on their current roles and projects in industry.
We are currently planning new ways of specifically engaging our alumni so further information will be coming soon on a dedicated alumni section on our website, and regular newsletters will sent where we will share the latest faculty news, keep you posted on the huge range of exciting events and activities coming up, and promote new job and business opportunities relevant to you and the wider MS&I community.
If you have any queries, or ideas or news to share please contact Shak Chowdhury, Employer & Alumni Engagement Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Women in Management Society
Established in 2013, the MS&I founded Women in Management society aims to inform, inspire and connect our students through workshops, skills sessions, networking events, discussions and competitions. There is an ongoing gap in gender equality when it comes to executive positions, and our Women in Management society aim to improve that in the future through giving our members the necessary support and inspiration and working closely with partner companies backing the initiative.
Join the Facebook group at www.facebook.com/groups/uclwomeninmanagement/ or get involved on Twitter @WiM_UCL. Website to be launched soon! Contact Natasha Weller at email@example.com if you would like to be involved in this initiative.
