MX (Masters Extra) programme

The Masters Extra (MX) programme is designed specifically for taught masters students in the School of Management and focuses on careers, and personal and professional development. This series of talks, workshops, networking opportunities and activities includes guest lectures from leading academics and experienced managers.

Through regular attendance, participants can enhance their career opportunities and earn a Certificate in Career Development. To qualify for a certificate, students must sign in and attend a minimum number of MX sessions across two semesters.

MX is an integrated programme between the School of Management, CEED (Centre for Educational Enhancement and Development) and the University Careers Centre.

For 2020-2021, MX will be presented live online via MS Teams. Formats 1 and 2 enable students to view the initial presentation or interview beforehand, and send in questions for the speaker to answer live during the Teams session. Format 3 is a live talk, followed by questions and answers, during the Teams session.
