Event Details

Dear MBA students and (E)MBAs, dear friends,

We have the pleasure to invite you to our next conference event dedicated to the perception of your MBA in the economy.

How can you best valorize your investment to support your career? What is the unique proposition you are bringing to the table as a holder of a MBA degree? What are the arguments you should put forward during a recruiting process? What are the things you should not say? Should you put forward the same points whether you are talking to a SME, a large multinational or an Executive search firm?

These are the kind of questions that our three speakers will focus on. Why three speakers? To make sure that we cover the various actors in the market and can understand their approaches, requirements and expectations….

The speakers come from a large multinational company (Nestlé), a SME based in Valais (Morand & Cie SA) as well as an executive research firm (Borrer Executive Research, Lausanne). In addition the academic program director of the EMBA HEC Lausanne will provide us with his vision on the program.

The conference will be structured as follows:


JeffreyPetty HEC Lausanne EMBA program: What is the main focus of the program?
Prof. Jeffrey Petty, academic program director of the EMBA at HEC Lausanne
FabriceHaenni Graduate of the class of 2014: How do I use my MBA in a SME environment?

The conference is free of charge if you are an active (i.e.: paid 2015 membership) member of the MBA-HEC alumni association, a student of the classes 2015 or 2016, or if you are part of the MoT alumni association. The number of seats is limited, and alumni of both associations will be registered in priority on a first come first served basis.

For non-members except students of the years 2015 and 2016, a fee of 50 CHF will be charged and the registration will be confirmed about 1 week prior to the event, depending on availability.
