Career Service for Companies
Each recruiting Company has its own talent acquisition strategy and needs, but many find SDA Bocconi MBA students an interesting pool of high potential candidates, regardless of their industry, size, geography or growth phase.
Career Service works with each Company to find the best way to promote their employer brand and to target the right students for their employment openings.
There are two main recruitment waves in the MBA calendar:
- The internship campaign from January through March when companies select MBA candidates for summer internship projects
- The permanent campaign from September to December, when companies offer MBA candidates full-time employment opportunities
Companies have a variety of ways to interact with our MBA candidates, on and off campus. All our services are flexible, available throughout the year, free of charge and delivered with passion and high quality standards.
On campus activities
Company presentations are held in dedicated afternoon slots and are normally followed by a recruiting process for an internship or full time position.
Job Interviews and Assessments can take place on our School's premises, with the organizational support of the Career Service.
Networking events include a few selected recruiters of the same industry in an informal lunch or cocktail where they can interact with students one-on-one or in small groups.
Club activities are a great way to work directly with students and participate in a round table or seminar to discuss specific business issues.
In Business case discussions Company Executives partner with the MBA Faculty to challenge the class with real-life business problems.
Off campus activities
Career Service Online Platform
After registering at our online platform, recruiters can post a job, search the CV database, collect candidates applications or email them directly, with or without the support of Career Service.
During the internship and permanent recruiting waves, Career Service coordinates job-postings, publishes job offers and supports companies in the interview and selection process.
CV Book and on-line CV Database
Companies can select candidates for interviews directly from the CV Book, online or offline. The CV Book provides a one-page snapshot of each candidate by highlighting their value proposition. It is downloadable in full from the Career Service online platform or available in hard copy free of charge.
Many international recruiters prefer to host students for on site visits at their premises rather than travel to Business School Campuses. Career Service can arrange career treks and company visits with selected groups of students with a specific interest in the recruiter's business or industry.
Individual Summer Internships – 8 to 12 week in-company projects – take place from June through August and are a serious, hands-on opportunity for companies to put an MBA talent to the test in their organization environment and for students to apply their professional and personal skills to a strategic project. Summer internship are usually coordinated by a Company Manager. Career Service can support the communication and advertisement of summer project opportunities as well as set up the selection process. Our team can help create the perfect match between company needs and candidate profiles, offering an in depth knowledge of each student's unique strengths and career aspirations.
Employer Branding through Sponsorships
Companies can greatly enhance their employer brand quality and visibility with different sponsorship opportunities. One option is to sponsor a full or partial scholarship and select a suitable candidate in collaboration with the Admissions Office. Alternatively, they can sponsor Club initiatives or other extra-curricular activities organized by SDA Bocconi MBA students at a local or global level: round tables, business presentations, workshops, inter-school competitions, sports events, charity events and cultural initiatives.
