Placements and Recruiters:
MBA Career Services aim is to help companies solve their recruitment needs by connecting them with the ideal student profiles in the most efficient and cost-effective manner. We do this by developing corporate relations, organizing events on campus and facilitating the recruiting process. Whether you are a long-time recruiter at IESE or are thinking of recruiting for the first time, it is essential to take into account that many students will be hearing about your company for the first time. With this in mind, MBA Career Services organizes a series of recruiting events on campus which provide companies with the opportunity to directly present themselves, describe their career opportunities and meet students. On-campus events include the Career Forum and Company Presentations. With the aim of enhancing interchange between companies and the students, MBA Career Services organizes logistics for these events including advertising, booking facilities, coordinating interview schedules or setting up networking events with students.

For companies not able to participate in the Career Forum or Career Days, MBA Career Services can also organize individual company presentations. These are open to both first and second-year students and give students the opportunity to learn about the company, its business activities, and career opportunities, openings available and specific details on the selection and recruitment processes for both summer internships and full placement. MBA Career Services can also coordinate the process of scheduling student interviews. Should companies need to, MBA Career Services can organize a cocktail reception where students can network with the company s employees and IESE alumni working there in a more relaxed atmosphere. http://www.iese.edu/en/OurCommunity/MBARecComp/MBARecruiting.asp
