This year the Career Center at WHU Campus Dusseldorf will hold its inaugural MBA Career Day, with another planned for November. The event offers the opportunity for MBA students to meet with national and global companies on a 1:1 basis. As the MBA is comprised mainly of students from around the world, the event is highly beneficial as the companies are actively interested in a diverse and international workforce.
The event takes place on January 27 and 28, 2022, with seven companies participating, including global sports brand adidas, e-commerce company Wayfair, multinational SC Johnson, biotechnology company of QIAGEN, as well as boutique consulting firms - Efficio, Horn & Company, and Ntsal. Students have the chance to connect 1:1 with representatives through online live chats, watch presentations, and attend a drop-in live booth to ask questions without arranging a personal appointment. Companies who are impressed by these conversations with the students can arrange interviews for the following day, offering immediate job opportunities and a straightforward hiring process.
“Networking is a powerful tool, and our career events are a great platform for students to present themselves,” says MBA Career Center Manager Shu Ling Tan. “Having a solid elevator pitch is key! At the MBA Career Center, we do our best to help the students before they meet the companies. We practice interview situations and help them to apply the skills they learn in our workshops. This is their time to shine and show what they can offer to potential employers.”
The MBA Program at WHU is ranked #1 in Germany for its top-quality faculty, practical approach to learning, and career support through the student’s MBA journey. The Career Center offers coaching, workshops, and hands-on training throughout their studies. This helps equip every student with the skills and knowledge they need to develop their existing career or find the role they want.
