The 2014 CEIBS MBA Career Treks is an annual program organized by CEIBS MBA students with the help of their MBA Career development center. The 2014 program was launched simultaneously in three different locations, Singapore, Hong Kong and Beijing. The program aims to help students deepen their understanding of their target industries and functions, and explore potential career opportunities through company visits and meetings with senior executives.
For their Singapore visit, CEIBS invited MBA students from the top three business schools in Singapore (NTU, NUS and SMU) to participate in the Trek, and three students – Noopur Singhal, Richard KW Lee and Chen Chi volunteered to participate and represented Nanyang Business School in the CEIBS trek.
We visited five companies in two days: DHL In-house Consulting, Credit Suisse, TradeHero, Abbott Labs and OCBC, which gave us an insight into several industries, including pharmaceuticals, logistics, mobile gaming and finance. The company visit on the first day was followed by a networking dinner and Mathew Stenger, Aswathi Suresh and Jeffery Zou joined us for the dinner.
Overall, this two-day event not only gave us a good platform to build contacts in the industry but also helped us in knowing all the participating students at a personal level.
