The ICMA Centre ranked 2nd for employability by The Times Good University Guide 2011

Professor Adrian Bell, School Director of Teacher and Learning, said: "We are delighted with our position in the rankings. This reflects the Centre's excellent links with leading financial institutions in the City, our practical application of finance theory through the use of our extensive dealing facilities and our dedicated careers service."

The ICMA Centre's dedicated Career Development Unit is available to both undergraduate and postgraduate students. The Unit, staffed by industry professionals, not only provide advice on writing CVs, producing effective applications and helping students to find internships but also arrange networking events with alumni and financial institutions.

Martyn Drage, Career Development Manager at the Centre, said: "We have long recognised the importance of career development and have integrated specialist career management assistance into the undergraduate degree with the Career Management Skills module as well as supplementary presentations and workshops led by industry professionals and recruiters. The service we offer adds real value to students and its great to see that this is reflected in the rankings for the Centre."

ICMA Centre BSc alumnus, Gurjit Kaur, said: "I don't believe I would have learnt nearly as much about the recruitment process, the investment banking industry or even about myself and my suitability to various career paths if it hadn't been for the Career Management Skills seminars, careers committee meetings and individual careers advisory sessions."

The ICMA Centre also faired well in the latest National Student Survey scoring a 96% overall satisfaction rate.
