LONDON, April 27 /CNW/ - Hult International Business School, the world's
first global business school, has launched an Executive Track program to help
place MBA graduates into competitive jobs even before they enter the MBA
program. The school's Executive Track program will take one year MBA
candidates who demonstrate the strongest professional capabilities and fast
track them with corporate mentors, career training, company visits and
Hult's President, Dr. Stephen Hodges, says, "The top concern that any MBA
has is finding a good job upon graduation. In today's shallow job market,
employers are looking for business degree holders who are well prepared,
nimble, and cooperative in a team environment. To that end, we are
hand-picking the highest caliber students before they enter our intense one
year MBA program, and streaming them into this special Executive Track where
employers will be able to carefully evaluate them as potential employees
during the year."
To qualify for the Executive Track students will go through a rigorous
selection process. Up to fifty of the most promising admitted students for
Hult's incoming September MBA class will be flown, all expenses paid, to
London for a day of intensive assessments. The day will include psychometric
tests, mock-interviews, team exercises, and a dinner with the School's
leadership team and local corporate executives.
Robin Nurse, Head of Hult's Career Services and Corporate Development
says, "This Executive Track gives the most qualified MBA candidates a head
start towards finding a job even before the MBA program begins. Employers are
just as excited about this as we are since it makes their recruiting process
Hult, which started life as the first corporate university in the United
States, places a strong emphasis on delivering a practical business education.
The majority of its faculty has spent years in industry as well as academia,
ensuring that students learn concrete skills that apply to real companies. Dr.
Stephen Hodges explains, "The Executive Track program fits perfectly with the
school's mission to provide an enduring and practical business education that
our students use on the job from Day One."
