Focus on Management

Wednesday 10th-Friday 12th June

"The 'Focus' course has been amongst the most interesting and inspiring opportunities I have taken advantage of during my time at UCL. 

Working with such bright and ambitious student, as well as learning how to succeed at assessment centres were invaluable experiences. Indeed, I'm sure the skills I learned and honed has helped me secure several job offers mere weeks after the course concluded. 

I urge all UCL students to have a go at this brilliant exercise."

(Quote from Focus on Management 2014 participant)
