Liverpool John Moores University bridges gap to graduate employment

Published: Tuesday, 21 July 2015   Category: All Graduate Jobs News

A new collaboration between a leading university and the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment (CISI) could make it easier for recent graduates to find employment.

Closing the gap between studying and graduate work, the Liverpool Business School location in Liverpool John Moores Univeristy (LJMU) will become an official partner of CISI and look to develop employability skills amongst current students.

Developing employability skills

Mike Franco, Programme Leader for Accounting and Finance at the University, said that this collaboration is incredibly exciting and a valuable step in the right direction.

This partnership will mean that students who are currently studying the MSc Financial Management degree at the university will have the unique opportunity to widen their knowledge of the sector and make themselves employable while also networking with individuals in the sector. 

Students will also have the chance to begin their CISI professional qualification to maximise their chance of landing a graduate role. 

These opportunities will add tremendous value to those studying the MSc Financial Management course and enhance their future employability prospects, Mr Franco concluded.

Combining qualifications with experience

LIMU sincerely hopes this is just the beginning of their partnership with CISI and predicts that there will be many additional opportunities for continued growth and enhancement for undergraduates and postgraduates in the future.

Simon Culhane, Chartered CISI Chief Executive, said that the organisation is extremely delighted to be working alongside the Liverpool University.

This partnership clearly demonstrates just how important it is to combine both professional qualifications with a highly relevant Master’s degree to ensure students gain that competitive edge in today’s fierce job market, he added.

Grad Plus has a wide range of finance and investment graduate jobs readily available for those considering a career in this sector
