MBA cohort meet leading recruiters at 3 day Careers Forum
EMLYON Business School recently hosted a 3-day Careers Forum in January 2015, giving participants of the International MBA the opportunity to network with over 100 leading recruiters including L’Oreal, KMPG, Michelin, Coca Cola and Accenture, and find out more about lucrative career opportunities.
In the range of recruitment opportunities and services provided throughout the year by EMLYON’s Careers Services, the 3 day Career Forum is the leading recruitment event, in which major international recruiters visit the campus to meet with high calibre students to discuss upcoming internships, jobs, graduate schemes and international placement opportunities.
- Capgemini Consulting
- Coca Cola Enterprises
- Johnson & Johnson
- Procter & Gamble
Participants of this year’s International MBA cohort attended the three day event and were provided with a programme of companies in attendance as well as available placement/job opportunities, giving them the opportunity to seek out companies that met their career ambitions and make the most of this highly beneficial networking experience. Also each year, EMLYON Business School publish a CV Book of the International MBA cohort, providing recruiters with detail of the profile, skills, competencies and career objectives of each MBA participant. This is a great way for recruiters to initiate the relationship with talented MBA participants and match up career opportunities with the profile they are looking for.
EMLYON alumni were also in attendance, some of whom have created successful companies since graduating from EMLYON Business School. Many were offering job opportunities as they can ensure a high level of education, capability and ambition from graduates of the school. For example in attendance was Amaris Consulting, co-founded by International MBA alumni Olivier Brourhant, who has grown the company to over 50 offices in over 40 countries, and attended the Careers Forum recruiting for new positions. Recruiters that attend the Careers Forums say:
“As an international company, we highly appreciate the intercultural approach of EMLYON MBA students who bring their entrepreneurial vision of business, strongly contributing to the development of the company. Their strong technical and management skills also answer to our need for the recruitment of managers of excellence.” Marc Jager, Arc International.
