ESCP students and alumni were invited to join the Spring series of the Highered Careers Fairs series, which had its finalé event on 5th June.
ESCP joined over 100 international schools in registering for the event run under the auspices of the EFMD Global Network. The initiative included 12 virtual career fairs across 5 sector-specific industries in 2 major geographical regions (EMEA and APAC) and a series of special events and panels including a series closing Deans’ Talk featuring Prof. Simon Mercado, Dean of ESCP Business School’s London Campus.
The registration for ESCP Business School was initiated and sponsored by ESCP London Campus and its Careers Services with event access for ESCP students on all ESCP campuses. Over 1,000 students attended and made more than 2,000 applications to companies associated with EFMD.
Reflecting on the event and its Covid-19 context, Professor Mercado commented:
“The EFMD Highered event is a sector leading initiative that is vital to graduate placement opportunities in these difficult times. ESCP has been delighted to join leading schools and companies as a partner for this cutting-edge event.”
Maria Tsianti, Head of Careers and Student Services at ESCP London Campus shared:
“This has been yet another successful event run in collaboration with EFMD and HigherEd. Under these unprecedented circumstances, hundreds of our students benefited greatly by being able to connect with all the amazing companies EFMD brought together online!”
