MFA graduates in high demand
Almost all LBS students who sought employment after completing their MFA 2017 programme received offers within three months of their graduation - the first-ever MFA employment report from the School has revealed.
Of the 73 MFA 2017 programme graduates who sought employment in the three months to December 19, 2017, 72 received an offer of employment (99%) and 70 accepted an offer (96%). Of the total number of 76 graduating students, two went into family-owned businesses and another started their own enterprise.
LBS graduates also confirmed the popularity of the United Kingdom as place to live and work despite ongoing uncertainty surrounding Brexit. The UK was the most popular job location for MFA 2017 graduates, with more than half of those who accepted offers of employment taking up positions in the region at the completion of their studies (53%)
Enrico Cocchi, MFA Career Lead at the LBS Career Centre, said: “It’s clear that when it comes to filling vacancies, our MFA graduates are in high demand. These men and women are going to the market with the knowledge and skills that employers are looking for and they are quickly rewarded for their endeavours,” he said.
“LBS’s 2017 MFA graduates worked incredibly hard over the course of their programme and it makes me proud to know that such a significant number were offered employment so soon after graduation.”
