Top Companies Hunt Talent at 2020 CEIBS MBA Recruitment Fair

January 15, 2020. Shanghai – Outstanding talent had some 230 full-time job opportunities and 60 internships to choose from at the CEIBS Career Development Centre’s 2020 MBA recruitment fair today. This year, the fair attracted more than 90 multinational and Chinese companies to our Shanghai campus from a variety of sectors, including financial services, industrial products, technology, consulting and healthcare.

In an opening speech, CEIBS Vice President and Dean Ding Yuan shared the school’s recent achievements, including both MBA and GEMBA programmes being globally ranked top 5 in 2019 by the Financial Times, and the employment rate for MBA 2019 graduates reaching 94.3% – the highest in 10 years.

The majority of participating companies at the fair were industry leaders and long-standing partners of the school, such as 3M, Adidas, Amazon, Apple, Bayer, Burger King, Bank of China Investment Management, Cifi, Deloitte, Ford, Fosun, Geely, Henkel, Hilti, Industrial Securities, Intel, JD Logistics, Johnson & Johnson, KPMG, Legend Capital , Lilly China, Michelin, Nike, Novartis, OPPO, PINGAN Asset Management, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Starbucks, UBS, Vivo, Walmart, WuXi AppTech, Vision Overseas, and YUYUAN Inc.

In addition to multinational companies’ continuing desire to recruit CEIBS MBA students, demand from Chinese local enterprises has also been very strong, and domestic firms represented 52% of all companies attending this year. To keep pace with hiring trends and meeting the rising needs of local companies for high-quality talent, the Career Development Centre (CDC) has been working to build a shared platform to bring enterprises and MBA students together. This year, the CDC will host the Chinese Enterprise Forum for the third consecutive year.

The CDC also held a ‘Recruitment Fair Prep Week’ to help students have more positive and meaningful discussions during the fair. A series of sessions and workshops with HR professionals answered students’ questions and helped hone their communication, interview and cover letter writing skills.

The CDC also integrates various resources to provide strong support for international students. One such initiative, the CEIBS International MBA Student Internship Programme, aims to offer more internship opportunities for those who want to pursue their career with Chinese companies. Meanwhile, in addition to established overseas treks such as in Singapore, India and the United States, the CDC ran the Dubai Market Exploration Trek for the first time last year. This March, a new trek to Denmark will also be arranged to help students get a better understanding of the business development and talent hiring trends of corporations in overseas markets.

The CEIBS MBA recruitment season 2020 will last until the end of July this year, and the MBA 2021 internship programme is already underway. For more information regarding internships and full-time recruitment, please email cdc@ceibs.edu or call 021-28905142.
