While the main aim the Brain and Cognitive Science Master’s is to equip students for academia and research, it also opens doors for industry careers, such as consultancy and data analysis.
Academia isn’t for everyone, and MBCS alumni are currently employed in the private sector too. To give our students the opportunity to network and explore careers outside of academia, the board hosts a yearly ‘Meet a Company’ event during which one or several company representatives give talks about their sector and careers.
What’s it like to work outside academia? What skills are required? How can our students leverage their academic background for a career in data science, consultancy, or non-profit work?
These and many more questions are discussed during our ‘Meet a Company’ event!
Do you work at a company, non-profit, or in government, and have a background in neuroscience or psychology? We’d love to have you present at Meet a Company! Please get in touch with us!
