We foster multidisciplinary working internally and collaborate widely externally. Imperial College students are favoured by recruiters worldwide not only because of their outstanding academic knowledge but also the well developed transferable skills in all aspects.

As the Imperial College Finance Society, we aim to help our members to shine as individuals, enhance their core values. Because of the steep learning curves and intensive timetables, Imperial students seek new opportunities and develop their leadership skills, team work, and time management skills to approach professionalism.

Students from every discipline are encouraged to enhance their communication and presentation skills in academic coursework. These together with the diverse student societies and a strong sports provision aim to provide an environment, in which they can shape their futures, and discover their true values to become future global leaders.

Imperial College Finance Society

The Imperial College Finance Society (ICFS) is the largest, most established society for university students seeking an early insight into finance and business as prospective career paths. Established in 1999, ICFS is experienced in providing innovative careers solutions to its members. We aim to foster a vibrant, interactive community for learning and networking with future employers/colleagues, peers/alumni and students at other top institutions globally.

With over 2800 members across all departments of Imperial College and the Business School, we aim to provide our members with the necessary wealth of resources and opportunities needed to support them in achieving their potential in their professional pursuits. Our success as a society can really be seen through the success of our members, gaining spring week positions, summer internships and graduate jobs in highly competitive sectors.

We hold interactive events with the markets leading investment banks and financial institutions - providing students with vital networking opportunities. By inviting leading professionals to give presentations on a wide range of topics, we can really help our members uncover their hidden strengths and develop their understanding of the global financial industry.

Ultimately, as a society, our main goals are twofold:

  1. To provide our members with the best experience possible in the form of advice and significant exposure to the financial industry, and
  2. To provide our sponsors with access to the highest calibre of students at Imperial College.
