According to a recent survey of over 250 current MBA students and graduates by thembatour.com, 85% of respondents felt that their career choices and job prospects improved over the previous graduating class and nearly 70% of respondents were satisfied with their school’s efforts in providing them with job opportunities. Unsurprisingly, the vast majority of respondents noted that networking was a key part of finding a job. Indeed, taking every opportunity to connect with people in your field of interest is an essential aspect of the job search process.
At IE, the diversity in our classes provides students with a platform to exchange ideas with people from different countries, industries and academic backgrounds. This opens the door to many opportunities after graduation whether as an entrepreneur, at a start-up or at an established company.
