The Career day acts as a bridge between the Global MBA participants and their future dream jobs.This year we organized a virtual career day in collaboration with MBA Exchange. This allowed them to exchange with senior professionals from leading companies like Uber, ViiBE, Tik Tok among others. This gave students the opportunity to network with potential future employers.
First, I would like take this opportunity to extend my deepest gratitude towards the entire team that organized the career day in collaboration with MBA Exchange. It was a remarkable experience, as we got the opportunity to meet and have a chat with senior professionals, at leading firms such as Uber, ViiBE, TikTok etc. Moreover, I got the chance to dig deep into the culture, work environment and recruitment process of the companies that I aim to target.
