How Career Services Helps You

Career support and guidance

The Career Services team is here to support, advise, and guide you as you explore your future after the MBA.  They will assist you to prepare for your next career, explore options, and connect with future employers. ESMT is one of the few schools that offer personalized one-on-one career coaching from certified professionals. MBA candidates meet with their coach at various points during the program. Coaches use this time to discuss personal life decisions that students make during their MBA, including:

  • Assessing career goals and designing a career development plan
  • Discussing each student’s employment strategy

ESMT Career Fair and MBA Talent Forum

Early and later in the MBA program students can take part in two large on campus events.

  • The first one is the annual career fair at ESMT campus with in total around 50 participating companies. It will take place spread out over 2 days: virtually on Thursday 26 January, and on campus face to face on Friday 27 January 2023. These career fairs are open for all ESMT students and alumni.
  • The MBA Talent Forum takes place on Friday 11 November 2022, and is exclusively designed for MBA students. Participating companies conduct first round job interviews, or orientating career conversations with MBA candidates in a private setting.

Company visits and presentations

During the year, ESMT MBA students have opportunities to interact with companies from a wide number of industries. Many corporate guests participate in class to discuss leading cases with professors, as well as dedicated information sessions about their companies.

Career Services organizes two career treks throughout Germany during the year. Students are able to visit company offices and ask questions about the industry or specific company culture. Recent company visits include: Allianz, Amazon, BMW, DeliveryHero, Earlybird, Google, HelloFresh, HERE, McKinsey, Microsoft, SAP, Signavio, Wayfair, Zalando, and many more.

Networking is paramount to landing the position of your choice. ESMT's interdisciplinary environment offers endless opportunities to meet and get to know alumni, recruiters, industry specialists, and guest speakers in Master Classes, open lectures, and student club activities. For the ambitious networking student, multiple chances to make connections at events and meetups exist off-campus as well.
