The right support for your career ambitions

From the moment you arrive, we will work with you to help you take a strategic approach to your career. Our LUMS alumni are realising their career ambitions with top employers across the world, and many return to campus to share their success stories with current students. 

Our award-winning Careers, Alumni and Employer Relations team ensures that you accelerate your career transition beyond your Masters.

Dedicated advice, guidance and coaching

The challenges of today’s business world are evident to all, but so are the opportunities. Your dedicated Postgraduate Careers Adviser provides you with personalised advice, guidance and coaching sessions to help you take advantage of the career openings that come your way.

Whether you are focused on achieving a specific career goal, need support with making impressive applications or want to explore new career paths that have opened up during your Masters, there are regular drop-in sessions and appointments available for longer consultation.

Integrated personal, professional and career development programmes

Our Masters programmes are intensive and will challenge you to perform to the peak of your abilities. Some Masters programmes have integrated, tailored career development workshops. These help you craft an effective CV/application, practise psychometric tests, research the graduate job market, and undertake mock interviews and assessment centres.

There are also business games, competitions and skills development workshops led by employers to encourage, energise and excite you about career possibilities.

Connecting you to employers worldwide

We understand that employability is one of the key reasons for doing a Masters, and we believe in giving you maximum exposure to businesses and employers. Our Careers Team invests a significant amount of time and personal support to keep you in touch with prospective employers across the globe, and to assist you with any aspect of your career search.

We organise over 100 employer events each year, including an annual Careers Fair which has included recruiters from organisations such as Accenture, BMW, Centrica, Deloitte, Google, HSBC, KPMG, P&G and many more. Employers often bring LUMS alumni with them, and you can hear directly about the job market, and what’s on offer for you when you graduate.

Whatever you want to do, and wherever you want to work, we give you the recruitment advice and guidance to help make your ambition a reality.
