Career Navigator Series
In an ever-evolving economy and employment market, it’s critical to make every move count. The Career Navigator Series equips students with the knowledge and confidence to make smart, informed career decisions. The course starts with a Graduate Panel Q&A, includes an Acing the Interview workshop and finishes with an intern-supervisor Meet & Greet.
Future Leaders Series
Being a leader is a state of mind. The Future Leaders Series will train you to think and behave like a leader. Likened to a mini-MBA, this course comprises over 15 hours of contact time, we’ll see you for a workshop every Thursday and set you weekly exercises. Classes include Market & Company Analysis, Sales & Marketing Fundamentals and Money Matters.
Group Activities & Travel
Learn more about yourself and open your eyes through travel. We’ll host a series of networking evenings, a weekend retreat, a day trip and social Happy Hours on Thursdays that bring you and your cohort together. And when we’re not together, we’ll always encourage you to get out, travel, explore and discover new things as you see new parts of the world.
