Coffee mornings

Themed and informal networking events

Thanks so much for organizing, I learnt a lot. It was a great opportunity to really speak with people from the industry. I also think the ratio of presenters to students was just right.

Our Coffee Mornings attract employers from a broad range of sectors to meet and interact with our highly engaged students and recent graduates.

Who is it for?

Our Coffee Morning programme is for organisations who are looking to attract and hire high-calibre LSE students and recent graduates (up to 5 years out from graduation). Our Coffee Mornings are themed by sector and therefore allow for more targeted engagement with students and graduates interested in your sector. 

What is offered?

Our interactive Coffee Mornings enable employers to have open and meaningful conversations with our motivated and engaged students and recent graduates. The interactive format of the Coffee Mornings help students to deepen their understanding of your organisation and available opportunities.

When and how does it take place?

Breakfast Busy Table Discussions

Coffee Mornings take place on Wednesday and Friday mornings between 8.30 – 10am, with some repeated 4.30pm – 6pm during the academic term. The format of the event is relaxed and flexible allowing organisations to engage with a target audience around a specific topic or sector. For our face-to-face Coffee Mornings, we provide light catering throughout the event.

Our online Coffee Mornings take place on our Zoom platform. All employers will have the opportunity to meet with a broad mix of students and graduates online.
