The Career Development Centre Team
The Career Development Centre is a global team of about 40 professionals representing over 20 nationalities, based across INSEAD’s three campuses in Europe, Asia and the Middle East. It consists of personal career coaches, employer engagement specialists, and operations team members with expertise in events management, digital resources and data analytics. Together, they engage with students enrolled in various programmes, through career core courses, electives, workshops and individual sessions, and develop partnerships with alumni and recruiters across multiple regional economies. They host hundreds of companies on campus and organise treks in various locations throughout the year.
The Employer Engagement professionals are dedicated to connecting INSEAD’s talent with world-class organisations, educating students about career opportunities, and briefing you on market and recruitment trends.
The MIM programme will prepare students for a wide range of career choices across different industry sectors, including consulting, financial services, technology and diversified industries (e.g. industrials and materials, FMCG, consumer and luxury goods, healthcare etc.). Within each sector, students will be able to access a range of functional areas, from project management to finance, sales and marketing, supply chain and operations and many more.
Students will benefit from a set of activities and resources delivered by the Career Development Centre before and throughout the programme. The Career Development journey consists of three main phases: Assess, Aim and Accelerate. We will partner with you to help you explore your career ambitions and mapping it against the ever-changing employment market. Our step- by- step process will allow you to identify your skills, attributes and drivers, and to access job opportunities by leveraging educational and engagement activities. Individual career coaching sessions and the interaction with an employer engagement specialist will allow you to smoothly prepare for and activate your job search strategy.
The Career Development Centre works with hundreds of companies across sectors and adapts the engagement activities with students depending on the company’s specific needs.
You will be able to consult with your career coach at any time on your career journey. An employer engagement specialist will also be available for individual sessions to discuss the specifics of a sector, function and/or country.
