Career Week

The Career Week acts as a bridge between the Global MBA students and their future careers. Over two days the students have three professional interviews: with a recruitment manager, a headhunter and a career coach allowing them to receive feedback on their strengths and weaknesses. It is designed to get insider tips on how to succeed their career, acquire valuable job search strategies and give students the opportunity to network with potential future employer.


The Career services at ESSEC are one of the key pillars of the program. The strong links that the program enjoys within the luxury industry become crystal clear when one gets exposed not only to distinguished people within the top luxury brands / conglomerates but also, to ever helpful alumni who are steadily making a mark in the respective luxury companies that they work in. I have been able to nurture many a relationship across the industry and the genesis of everything, I must say, lies with the opportunities that the Career service cell initially provided within the MBA program.”

A word from our Career Services team

At ESSEC we believe that each one of our students is unique and we trust their capacity to design and achieve their specific target. My role as a career coach is to develop and empower the ESSEC Global MBA students by helping them assess their strengths and define their career goals.

I also connect them with recruiters, experts and alumni so as to enable them to gain exposure to the job market and to connect with professionals in the industry that they desire to work. I organize all types of career activities ranging from individual coaching sessions to workshops to company visits, inviting guest speakers and networking events. ESSEC continues to work closely and build valuable relationships with partner companies worldwide to ensure the students have a strong network to take advantage of to build a great career path.

My favorite motto is “You have the answer”.
