You will find below a selection of ways to interact with our MBA students.

  • Company events

We can help advise you on the ideal recruiting format for your organisation.  For regular recruiters with an established recruiting programme at INSEAD, we offer the possibility of holding a one-hour event which typically includes a 30-minute formal presentation focusing on your organisation’s vision, culture, possible career paths, and hiring process and a 30-minute Q&A session.  These presentations are generally followed by a networking cocktail reception, with interviews held 2 to 3 weeks later.

Another option is to participate in a multi-sector networking event with a limited number of organisations, enabling you to interact with students over a two-hour period.  It is a great opportunity to really get to know students and tell them more about your organisation and career paths in an exclusive setting.

For all company events on campus we recommend that, wherever possible, you include as part of your recruiting team, INSEAD Alumni who can make a powerful impact and explain your company to students.

  • On-Campus Interviews

Face-to-face interviews can be scheduled in our interview rooms on the Asia and Europe campuses using our web-based scheduling system in CareerGlobe.  We can also set up interviews via Skype and video-conference for candidates who are studying on a different campus.

INSEAD’s Career Development Centre organises a series of thematic forums throughout the year.  Below are some of the events happening in 2016:

  • Social Impact Career Forum

Run as a joint venture between INDEVOR (INSEAD’s MBA-led social impact club) and INSEAD’s Career Development Centre, this biannual forum gives you the opportunity to interact with students considering a career in Social Impact. The event generally kicks off with a Keynote Presentation followed by two hours of networking between company representatives and students.

  • Entrepreneurship Career Forum

This biannual event is dedicated to the stakeholders of the Entrepreneurship Ecosystems (entrepreneurs/intrapreneurs, startups, SMEs, Incubators and Accelerators, VCs) to interact with students interested in this field during a networking session, followed by a cocktail reception.

  • Middle East Talent Networking Forum

The Middle East Talent Networking Forum brings together INSEAD students and alumni from the MBA and the Executive MBA programmes as well as recruiters and decision makers from various sectors, to discuss opportunities for recruiting and developing top talent in the region.  

  • Workshops

These represent an excellent opportunity to help students develop skills that could eventually benefit your organization. Past topics have included presentation skills, case interview techniques and finance interview preparation.

Our students have created a variety of sector-specific clubs, including consulting, private equity, consumer & luxury goods, healthcare, energy, entrepreneurship and Social Impact. Working with the clubs on their various events enables you to efficiently target and network with groups of motivated students. List of Business Clubs.

Career treks enable students to meet with established and emerging business leaders in their offices and attend networking events. It is most of the time about discovering an industry or a company, and to ask questions about how it works and what your company is all about.

These usually take the form of discussions on careers in specific industries or functions, or on issues such as women in business. Three to four speakers are generally invited to share their experience with our participants.

The Employer Engagement Specialists can facilitate connections between company representatives and members of the student clubs.
