Meet Imperial's MBA Class of 2024


1) Innovation with strategy: “What distinctly attracted me was the school’s comprehensive curriculum integrating innovative technology management with business strategy—a critical synergy aligning with my engineering background and aspirations in consulting. The program’s emphasis on fostering an entrepreneurial mindset within a global business context appealed to me significantly. Imperial’s commitment to practical application through real-world case studies and exposure to diverse industries resonated deeply, offering a unique opportunity to augment my technical expertise with strategic business acumen.” Rajnah Alamili (’24)

2) World-class STEM institution: “I was attracted to attend somewhere that is an ecosystem of energy innovation. The leading research at the Grantham Institute and Energy Futures Lab is something we can benefit from with while studying an MBA at the Business School. There are some innovative companies like Ceres Power, who developed fuel cells, and H2GO power, focussing on hydrogen generation and storage, who have come through Imperial’s research and accelerator programs. They are leading examples of the impact that Imperial can have on big global problems.”
 David MacDonald (’24)

3) Remarkable flexibility: “While we have compulsory modules in the first term, the program allows us to select our own concentrations from a diverse range of modules. What sets this flexibility apart is that it doesn’t require us to make a rigid decision from the very beginning. Instead, we have the opportunity to explore different areas of interest. For instance, I have been able to participate in workshops organized by the Enterprise Lab while also exploring ESG-related activities organized by the career clubs. This flexibility holds great importance to me as it enables me to thoroughly explore my interests and make sure I am fully invested in a particular subject before committing to it.”
 Eva Look (’24)

4) Focus on entrepreneurship: ”Coming from the healthcare industry, I am well aware of the prestigious reputation that Imperial College commands in the sector. However, the main reason I chose to pursue my MBA here is because of the program’s focus on entrepreneurship. I have a social entrepreneurial idea that is geared towards tackling healthcare challenges in LATAM, and I am confident that this school has all the resources to support me in bringing this idea to fruition. With the Enterprise Lab, the new White City campus available for prototyping, and renowned faculty in healthcare I am certain that I am in the right place to make an impact.”
 Edison Nuñez Toro (’24)

5) Positive impact: ”The Imperial program had a great focus on making a positive impact on society, whether through the self-development modules or through the ESG and Stakeholder Impact specialization, both of which appealed to me and aligned well with my values and goals.” Aakanksha Jaiswal (’24)
