We wanted to share our recruiting visits over the last 4 weeks to Dubai, Beirut, India, Singapore & Hong Kong, which have all been overwhelmingly positive and are resulting in positive outcomes for our Career initiatives.
In Dubai, meetings were held with Averda, AT Kearney, Standard Chartered, Thomson Reuters and CreditSuisse. Also we could meet with 17 alumni who signed up for the 121 Advising sessions.
