Jasmin Elbert, Master of International Business, London Class of 2014
Jasmin Elbert pursued a Masters in International Business at Hult International Business School for exactly that reason—she now works in a data analytics role for Google, where she currently works as a search and automation specialist, helping clients maximize their search engine optimization by analyzing their data.
“[The Masters] really helped develop [my] soft skills,” she says, “which is really important in real life—I learned how to work in multicultural environments, how to communicate with other people, and how to identify strengths [within a team].”
Practical application: Hult Business Challenge
Teamwork is harnessed through the Hult Business Challenge—students decide whether they want to enroll on the entrepreneurial track, where they incubate their own ideas, or the corporate track, where they work with a multinational company to solve a real-world business issue.
Jasmin opted for the corporate track and was placed in a diverse-rich team formed of people from different nationalities, industries, and backgrounds, working with consumer services company Lebara Limited—they hired her afterwards as a market research analyst before she moved to IT services firm Accenture as a digital analyst.
Now at Google though, she’s seen how tech companies place a large value on employees with a global mindset, as they look for people with an understanding of an array of cultures and personalities who can collaborate with their peers.
While there, Jasmin has begun to see the true value of the Masters in International Business from Hult and explains:
“I think because nowadays you can do online courses and learn whatever you want, [companies like] Accenture and Google look [closely] at the soft skills.”
