New MBAs Start Building Job Search Skills

New MBA students got a jump start on landing their ideal jobs following graduation, during an intensive 2-day Career Workshop that formed part of Orientation Week.

The workshop featured sessions on career management, professional relationships, self-assessment and entrepreneurship. Students also gained insights on key sectors such as investment banking and consulting in special sessions led by representatives from Morgan Stanley and The Boston Consulting Group. The workshop kicked off with a welcome from Javier Muñoz, director of MBA Career Services.

Also during the event, IESE Prof. Adrian Done gave the new IESE MBA students an overview of global business trends in his presentation, "The World in 20 Years and How This Will Affect Careers."

Students from around the world arrived on IESE's campus in Barcelona last week to embark on "Orientation Week" and the school's full-time MBA program. Students took part in various activities and met with IESE professors, staff members and fellow classmates.

IESE's full-time MBA is highly global in focus and diversity in terms of students' nationalities, experience and backgrounds is an important program asset. Roughly 80 percent of the class is international. The Career Services team provides a wide range of resources and support to help students reach their career goals. It also works closely with companies all over the world and assists them in identifying the right profiles to meet their recruiting needs.
