From 10 to 15 July a team from Madrid, along with the local IE India Office team, completed a 5 day corporate relations exercise that went a long way to increase brand recognition and placement opportunities for IE alumni based in India.
Over the 5 days Amber Wigmore Alvarez – Executive Director of the Career Management Center, along with our local Director of Career Services, completed not only 10 company visits with top management and at leading companies such as Roland Berger, Jet Airways and LVMH, but Amber also was the keynote speaker at a conference for 60 HR directors, organized in conjunction with local organization MTHR. During the trip William Davila, Joël McConnell, Karan Gupta and Amber Wigmore Alvarez also hosted alumni meetings, master classes, and presented IE at top IB schools.
Finally, new incoming degree candidates were hosted at events for admitted applicants, so that alumni and future students could start their networking early. Given the success of the exercise, we’ll be repeating in other key markets in the Asia Pacific region over the coming year.
