Career and Personal Development Track
We have created a special optional Career and Personal Development Track (CPDT) to help you achieve your goals. The CPDT aims at providing you with the tools necessary to help you find a job upon completion of your MBA degree at MSM. Throughout the year, you will train your soft-skills and prepare yourself for a successful career. Personal development training is also integrated in some of the courses of the curriculum. What to expect in the CPDT:
- networking events,
- HR managers coming to talk to you,
- collaboration with regional corporate partners that are looking for international students,
- CV book published by MSM for our corporate partners to facilitate the recruitment of our students,
- business challenges, company visits and guest speakers,
- workshops on CV and motivational letter writing, presentation skills, LinkedIn and video resume, elevator pitch
- individual self-awareness and self-development coaching
- holistic life balance trainings.
After graduating from the full-time MBA program at MSM, you may be eligible for an orientation year permit. This means you can stay in the Netherlands for 1 year in order to search for a job as a highly skilled migrant. If you find a job in the Netherlands, the work permit process is designed to be much easier for graduates of MSM’s full-time program.
Develop your global leadership skills
Joining the full-time MBA class will challenge you to develop your management skills in a diverse, international and multicultural environment. The more than two dozen nationalities represented in the atypical class of the full-time, residential format of the MBA creates a stimulating learning environment inside and outside the classroom. This will help you develop your global and multicultural leadership skills and expand your global network.
