For many students, the desire to boost their career prospects and move more quickly into senior roles is a key reason for acquiring a Masters degree. That's why we integrate careers support into our MSc programmes and offer a range of facilities to help you in your career development and job search process.

Like all of the School’s Masters students, you will have access to guidance and support from the LUMS careers team. But to give you extra industry-specific job-hunting skills, we have a dedicated MSc Management Careers Coach, Martine Dawber, who provides dedicated careers support to all students on our FT ranked programmes. This includes a comprehensive range of support, from workshops and employer presentations to CV advice, interview techniques, application support and help with job searches. Martine also tracks and supports the growth and development of our MSc Management graduates, building links with employers to ensure past graduate successes continue to inspire future students.

Employer Events

You will also be able to take part in the many workshops and other employer events provided throughout the year by the careers team at LUMS. Many of the workshops are run by major companies, allowing you to find out what companies look for when recruiting at this level, and to improve skills which employers regard as essential in good candidates.

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, and others choose to set up their own business, based on ideas developed during their studies.
