A truly multicultural dimension

The idea is to invite companies that are truly global: Five leading companies participated in this year’s January venue: Johnson & Johnson, Bureau Veritas, Accor Hotels, Hays Executive and Amadeus.

“These companies really ‘walk their talk’ in terms of multicultural ambition,” states Sandra Richez Head of Career Services Global MBA, “They are looking for people who are mobile and think globally, who are capable of leadership, of dealing with complexity in different environments around the world.”

EDHEC Global Talent Day was created five years ago in partnership with global recruitment agency Hays Executive. “The MBA programme allows people to gain a real expertise to work in synergy with a diversity of people, at international level and in project mode” says Christophe Dulhoste, principal associate Hays Executive. For this venue, his key note presentation focused on Leadership Skills and highlighted as well, the key findings of the 2016 Hays Global Skills Index.

“Every day we help clients simultaneously dealing with talent shortages in certain markets, while having to reshape workforces in others”, he said. “The need to address skills shortages is more critical than ever: This year’s Index shows that as the global economy slowly recovers, businesses are still struggling to find the talent they need.”

For EDHEC Global MBA students who have been in the program since September, this January venue represents the first time they are in direct contact with potential employers.

“It serves as a wake-up call for these students who will be graduating in May, and marks the launch of the recruitment season‘, says Ms Richez. 

The event is co-produced by the EDHEC MBA Alumni Association, offering an opportunity to network with EDHEC alumni and learn from their experience.

The initiative is part of the EDHEC MBA CareerSMART programme, which includes coaching, workshops, and mentoring to give students their best chance on the recruitment market. This February 2017, Amazon and Microsoft will be onsite to meet talents, followed by Faurecia in March.

At academic level, two EDHEC MBA courses in March will be co-delivered with top companies:  Operations and Supply Chain with Amazon and Big Data and Artificial Intelligence @ work with Amadeus, Google and Tableau Software. Companies also open their doors to EDHEC MBA students during the business trips organised in the scope of the programme in Cape Town, Singapore, San Francisco and London.
