At Hult, the emphasis is on the business the part of business school. Our programs are designed in consultation with CEOs, our students work on real problems facing real companies, collaborate with game-changing organizations, and the world’s leading corporates and most exciting startups are a constant presence on campus.
Here are just a few of the companies that we’ve had the pleasure of welcoming on campus so far this term:
PwC – Hult Master of International Business alum Marc Seipp, a Management Consultant at PwC, bought the “PwC Pitch Challenge” back to Hult’s London campus for the second year running. A select group of students devise a solution to a real clients’ problem and compete in a “pitch off”. It’s a unique opportunity to practice winning the business in the first instance, rather than reflecting back on case studies in the classroom. It’s also a great networking opportunity. As Marc says:
“A huge network being established at Hult that we can all leverage and build. It’s not just about receiving; it’s about contributing and creating a community of like-minded professionals. A business school is not just about education; it’s also about the network and the opportunity.” – Marc Seipp, Hult MIB Class of 2013, Management Consultant at PwC
Amazon – David Domene graduated from Hult in 2014 and is now an Area Manager for Amazon. David has recruited three Hult students so far for Amazon and this term he was back on campus again with his manager, presenting to students and taking their questions.
Gartner – The HR Manager from Gartner – an industry leader in the field of It research and consulting with offices in no less than 27 countries – came to campus with Hult alumni who now work there. After presenting, the team from Gartner set students a challenge and gave them a month to work on it. The student teams with the best solution to the challenge will be invited to visit the Gartner office in London, and Gartner will then recruit some students from that winning story. Last year, we ran a similar challenge with SalesForce where several Hult Masters students who participated are now employed.
Unilever – Over 100 students attended the Career Discovery event with Unilever’s Tony Latham. Tony leads the Finance team overseeing all aspects of Unilever’s Global Supply Chain and spoke to students about the consumer goods industry, his personal career path, and his contribution to Unilever’s sustainability mission.
Tata Communications – The global giant of IT consulting came to present to students about the companies and to recruit for the positions they have globally.
Microsoft – Microsoft’s Talent Manager who recruits for positions globally ran a webinar on the recruitment process at Microsoft and what it’s like to work there. Afterward, Hult sent suitable CVs to Microsoft who selected the ones they wanted to interview.
With its close proximity to Silicon Valley and global reputation as a center of innovation, San Francisco is home to many of the today’s most recognizable brands. Among those presenting and speaking at Hult San Francisco this term were:
