Whirlwind tour including 17 networking meetings in 2.5 days

by Rachel Thomas, IMBA April 2013 intake
30th January 2014
In January, a group of 19 IMBA students and recent graduates traveled to London with the aim of finding out about careers in the city and to build their networks with firms in their target industries. The group set up meetings with senior executives and recruitment specialists, in addition to London-based alumni at a networking drinks event in collaboration with Sally Averill of the IE London office.
Most meetings were with firms in management consulting and financial services sector, in particular private equity, as well as others in the technology, consumer goods and media sectors.  They got insights into life as a management consultant from top-tier firms including McKinsey, BCG, Accenture and Deloitte; a peek in to the world of private equity by hearing from KKR, Investcorp and Cinven; an excellent strategic view on the potential of emerging markets from multinationals Unilever and Pearson; discussion of the beauty industry with Estée Lauder; and a lucky group of seven even got served lunch at the offices of Google.
The trip was rounded off with a drink or two and tapas at an excellent Hispanic bar with a bunch of approx. 30 UK-based IE alumni who gladly shared their stories and post-MBA experiences in a variety of sectors and disciplines.

Utterly exhausted, the group returned to Madrid with a much better understanding of the London job market and high hopes that the tentative recovery in the UK economy and the current demand for diverse workforce will be good news for IE job-hunters in the coming months.



Career trends: One on one session in Dubai

Escrito el 20 septiembre 2013 por Alumni en Careers, Geographic

Yesterday September 18th, 29 alumni that live and work in the Middle East had the opportunity of meeting one on one with recruitment consultants in Dubai.

This time we decided to offer a tailored career session were alumni could hold 20-minute conversations with our invited collaborators from Korn/Ferry International and Boyden Middle East, and talk about the current market opportunities. The 29 alumni that attended could also share a networking moment and meet other fellow alumns while they waited for their turns and shared some snacks.

The consultants had the CV of the alumni interested in the sessions in advance, and this really helped us figuring out which of them could best address the questions, issues and interests of the alumni. It was in many senses a productivity exercise under the coordination of Inga Walter, IE-Brown Executive MBA alumna, 2012.

She pointed out that it is a priority to follow up on these small communities and thanked IE for having articulated a way like this by which energies can be channeled properly  for the good of society. The closing speech was done by Marco Herrera, executive director of FUNGLODE, who expressed again his support of this institution to IE under the agreement signed between both associations.
