Full-Time MBA Career Advisory

No two students are ever the same; that is why our career services are tailored to suit the needs of each MBA student. We have a dedicated Career Advisory Team exclusive to the Full-time MBA, with offices directly in the MBA building.

At the beginning of your MBA journey, you undertake our four Career Development courses, where you work on a wide range of career-enhancing competencies:
- Team Dynamics
- Professional Development
- Personal and Career Development
- Leadership Development

Within these courses, we begin to understand your motivations, career goals, unique character and life experience, inviting you to open your mind to a world of career opportunities before deciding upon your continued career path. Our goal is to partner with you on long-term, authentic and meaningful career development rather than help you land a post-MBA job.

We will create opportunities for you to network with companies and equip you with the understanding of how to seize those opportunities for your professional benefit. Our sessions will enable you to take ownership of your career, both strategically and tactically. Meeting sessions can cover topics like how to define your passion, craft your mission statement, present your value proposition, and other technical skills such as focusing on improving the content of your resume, cover letter, or how to conduct compensation negotiations. Interactive workshops will train you to give sharper responses during interviews and build your online and personal brand.

Career Advisory is ultimately an ecosystem of stakeholders, including students, alumni, corporates, external trainers and our team. As an MBA student, we expect you to gain awareness and appreciation for this ecosystem and play an essential role in nurturing the relationships so that everyone can continue to benefit over the long term.
