Careers support

For many students, the desire to boost their career prospects and perhaps accelerate their progression to senior roles is a key reason why they study for a Masters degree. In recognition of this, Lancaster University Management School provides a range of facilities to support you in your career development and job search process.

Careers programme

The Management MSc programme has a Careers Advisor, who provides a full careers programme which includes:

  • Workshops on career management and on how to improve job search skills, tailor your CV, networking with employers and improve your interview technique, etc
  • One-to-one guidance and assistance on career planning and job search
  • Employer presentations
  • LinkedIn training workshops

Many of the workshops are run by major companies, giving you first-hand insights into what companies look for in their recruitment and enabling you to improve skills which employers regard as essential attributes of good candidates.

Career Advancement and Internship Officer 

The MSc Management students also have their own Career Advancement and Intership Officer, Martine Cooksley.  Martine works specifically with the LUMS FT ranked programmes and supports our students on the programme with individual assistance dedicated to subject area, where students can discuss CV's, interview techniques, cover letters, application processes and help with job or internship search.  Additionally, Martine continues to track and support growth and development of our students, building links with employers and with the aim that MSc Management alumni progression and suceess will inspire future students.

Where do our graduates go?

Each year the mix of final destinations will vary, reflecting the different interests and aspirations of the students within the class.

Companies who recruited our graduates recently include Dow Chemicals, Ernst & Young, Deloitte, KPMG, BAE Systems, Marks and Spencer, Nissan, Philips, Nielsen and Bank of China.

A small number of students go on to further study, some taking up the opportunities offered within our Study Abroad programme. Others set up their own business, based on ideas developed while on the MSc.

We aim to develop the managers of the future, who will go on to leadership roles in global organisations.
