New "Young Talent Program" Initiative for University Students < Back
IESE Business School (University of Navarra) has launched a new initiative that gives talented young university students a head start on their careers. The Young Talent Program (YTP) allows students to enjoy pre-admission to IESE's highly-ranked MBA program, along with a promising future with a leading firm.
IESE Dean Jordi Canals, presented the new iniative to the participating companies, potential partner companies, and members of the press at IESE's campus in Madrid today. Other attendees included senior members of the business community and representatives from leading universities.
Here is how the program works: After completing their basic university degrees, students apply for YTP and, if they are chosen for pre-admission to IESE, they are then presented to top companies for recruitment opportunities. If the candidate is offered a contract with a participating firm, they are officially admitted into the YTP Program.
Participants attend the valuable Next Steps Workshop at IESE, before spending the next two years working and building up their professional experience at their company. Following two years of successful performance at their firm, participants head to Barcelona for the IESE MBA. Upon graduation, they return to their firms to put their knowledge to work.
Some of the firms participating in the program include Boston Consulting Group, BP, Cisco Systems, EADS CASA, ENDESA, Johnson and Johnson, Mango, McKinsey & Co., Merck Sharp & Dohme, Microsoft, Nestlé, Philips, and Santander.
The YTP is aimed at junior and senior-year university students who demonstrate academic and personal excellence and who come from the world's leading universities.
IESE Business School is consistently ranked among the top business schools in the world. Its bilingual (Spanish/English) MBA program takes a general management focus and includes students from some 50 nationalities.
