London | | Media Releases EMEA

New programme aims to help professionals re-enter the workforce

UBS and LSE Executive Education (based at the London School of Economics and Political Science) have partnered to launch UBS Career Comeback. The programme is aimed at professionals with a minimum of five years experience, (preferably in financial services) who, after an 18-month to seven year career break, would like help in transitioning back into the workforce. A degree is required as a minimum qualification (a masters or MBA is preferred).

The programme will be held from March 12-14, 2008 at The London School of Economics and UBS. The selective course is offered free of charge to participants and includes:

• Important business updates from leading professors in finance, marketing, technology and strategy
• Professional one-to-one coaching
• An overview of the current regulatory environment
• Development of a personal action plan for re-entering the workforce
• Networking with other returnees and UBS employees

Simon Flemington, CEO of LSE Executive Education said:

"Current research has shown that there are numerous challenges faced by people returning to the workplace, such as a lack of up to date business knowledge, new regulatory environments, emerging markets and latest technological advances. These challenges can be overcome with the right preparation and expert knowledge and this is exactly what LSE Executive Education and UBS can offer.'

Mona Lau, UBS Global Head of Diversity said;

"At UBS we know from experience that talented individuals can successfully relaunch their careers. We're confident that this programme will give them the cutting-edge information they need so that they can hit the ground running."

The deadline for applications is 15 February 2008.
