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, 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 attend a minimum of four MX sessions in each semester. There are 12 sessions in all, following the introduction that is held in Orientation Week.

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

During 2022-2023, MX sessions will be presented in one of two formats, with each week's format according to the speaker's preference, either:

  • in person at the School of Management, or
  • online on Microsoft Teams.

Speakers will give a talk at 4pm on Wednesdays, and this will be followed by 30 minutes for Q and A.
