Coolest MBA Student Clubs in London


Any student pursuing an MBA quickly learns that the process of earning the degree is so much more than just what happens in the classroom. From internships to competitions to networking events, what happens outside of the classroom can be crucial to an individual’s development in business.

Fortunately, most business schools offer a number of student organizations with a focus in business. Providing an opportunity to meet like-minded individuals and further one’s classroom experience, these student groups can be an integral part of earning an MBA.

If you are planning on or are pursuing your degree in the London metro, here are just a few of the coolest student groups available.

Students in the club have a range of interests within sustainable business, such as environmental and social sustainability, green energy and clean technology, legislation for sustainable business and/or mobilizing businesses for climate change. The club gives students the opportunity to learn the latest trends within the industry, draw connections from the business school curriculum to real-world questions of sustainability and showcase research from Imperial Business School students.
