Sandra Richez, the EDHEC Global MBA Careers Advisor and innovator of the CareerSMART programme offers regular advice to our MBA candidates. She is pleased to share her insight into some changing recruitment trends and what they actually mean to the MBA candidate:
Danae Sakkou from Greece began the EDHEC Global MBA program in the January intake. Before coming to EDHEC, she was an instructor at several language schools teaching English. In 2013, she completed a Master’s degree in linguistic development, which included studying human cognition and various language disorders. After three years of teaching, she was ready for new challenges as well as new opportunities - the EDHEC MBA was just the solution.
Nikhil Shah, a 37-year-old Filipino-Spanish-Indian participant with a background in Operations and Management Systems Auditing, joined EDHEC Global MBA program in January 2015.
During the Global MBA Program, participants have the opportunity to join extra-curricular clubs. Along with previously existing clubs focusing on entrepreneurship, marketing, and consultancy, two new clubs have been offered this year: the Finance Club and Energy Club. These clubs, organized and run by Global MBA participants, offer increased opportunities for networking, and allow for more in depth and hands-on learning. They meet weekly at the EDHEC Nice campus and are all well attended by Global MBA participants.
Yang Yang, a current Global MBA participant from China, used social media to help her make a decision as to what MBA program she would pursue. After first using several online websites such as Le Point, l’Etudiant, Campus France, as well as Chinese websites about studying in France, Yang then focused on social media, notably the Chinese Weibo. “The reason why I used this social media is to see how EDHEC or other French schools are perceived by Chinese and how their reputations were. Some alumni can be found on this social media and more information can be got directly from them.”
