Friday’s company visits gave the MBAs the chance to discover more about the culture of some of our recruiters, namely Werfen, McKinsey & Company, Honeywell, Google and Siemens and potential opportunities within those companies for a future career.
It also gave the MBA Office the chance to welcome back many friendly faces from across the years, as the companies brought with them alumni who could share their personal insights about how their careers have developed since graduating from IMD and the roles they currently play. So, while the MBAs benefit on the career side, we, the MBA team, also benefit by being able to catch up, and enjoy a kind of pride as we see how these people we got to know so well have developed, and hear about what they’ve achieved and how their families have grown.
