To achieve their professional goals and manage career changes, a career development program has been designed to support the participants with individual coaching sessions and collective workshops. During these sessions, they will benefit from collective feedback, individual reflections, career development tools and personal development exercises that can help them make the most of the MBA and reach the next step of their career.

First, the Career Program allows students to question their professional orientation, and identify their target market. During workshops with career coaches, participants will determine, via specific tools and tests, their personal and professional motivations and values.

Then, the Career Program program builds on the participant’s personal and professional reflection by means of a variety of tools aimed at effectively re-entering the professional world. Workshops are led by career coaches, HR and recruitment professionals.
