London Business School leavers 'likely to secure graduate placements'

Published: Monday, 20 December 2010   Category: All Graduate job news

The vast majority of students at London Business School secure employment or a place on a graduate scheme shortly after leaving, new figures show.

According to the school's 2010 MBA Employment Report, 91 per cent of students gained employment within three months this year - up ten per cent on 2009's figures.

Fiona Sandford, director of career services, said that 2010 had been a "great year" for London Business School.

"The increase in the number of MBA students finding employment soon after graduating highlights the increasing demand for our graduates across the globe," she claimed.

Nearly three-quarters of graduates who found employment started work with a new employer, while 12 per cent returned to work for a previous employer.

Over a third of graduates decided to enter the financial services sector, with 37 per cent opting for industry and 25 per cent choosing consulting.

Ms Sandford noted: "Six per cent of our graduates have found roles in technology and telecommunications - now the most popular sector within industry."

London Business School recently revealed that its new Masters in Management programme had been well received by employers, with 95 per cent of students finding employment within three months of graduating and the average graduate securing a salary of £35,000.
