Best year yet for the finance masters

Virtually every masters in finance graduate from London Business School found employment within three months of graduating in 2006, making it the best recruitment year yet for the school.

Ninety-nine per cent of graduates found employment within three months of leaving at over 80 companies.

Forty-four per cent of graduates became involved in investment banking and 13 per cent in asset management, joining companies such as Barclays Capital, Deutsche Bank and UBS.

Ten per cent of graduates entered private equity or venture capital and 9 per cent have taken corporate roles in industry in organisations such as Air France, Amazon and General Motors.

Although graduates came from 43 countries, 56 per cent have taken up employment in the UK since studying in the country. London Business School associate dean finance programmes Sabine Vinck says: There is an increasing need for senior finance professionals and this is a great time to be graduating from our masters in finance programme.

The programme prov- ides students with the knowledge and expertise for todays finance-oriented world.

In the year they spend at the London Business School, our masters in finance students gain a lot more than technical expertise. They meet people they would never otherwise meet and do things they would not do elsewhere, giving them confidence to tackle new challenges.
