Record employment for LBS MiF students

A record number of LBS alumni accepted jobs within three months of graduation. LBS has revealed that 92% of the School’s Masters in Finance (MiF) students of 2016 were offered jobs within three months of graduation, and the mean salary stood at £67,724.

This is the highest MiF employment rate since 2007, a time when, says Lara Berkowitz, Executive Director, Career Centre at London Business School,“our students’ employment options and choices were very different”.

Lara believes that, while opportunities for finance masters graduates have changed significantly since the global financial crash a decade ago, there are now many new opportunities across a wide range of employers, both in the UK and elsewhere.

“Our unique MiF programme provides students with a launch-pad to create resilient finance careers. LBS MiF students are agile and curious. They have distinguished themselves with both strong finance technical and interpersonal skills in a challenging jobs market, securing employment across a range of sectors that are much more diversified than the pre-crisis days when almost half of our students went into a small group of investment banks.”
