EDHEC Finance Students as Highly Sought After by Employers as Ever

Written on 11 October 2012.

Approximately 700 first year and final year Master students participated in the Finance Career Day at EDHEC Business School to meet with recruiters in the finance arena. Companies have had a chance to take advantage of the new format of the event and choose from a broad range of activities such as skills workshops or networking sessions with preselected students.In addition, this year, the Talent Management Conference, dealing with diversity in the workplace, added significant value to this very intense and full day of meetings.
Eniola Fadipe, VicePresident, Campus Recruitment and Graduate Programming - EMEA at BlackRock; Malcolm Horton, Managing Director and Global Head of Recruitment and Programmes at Nomura; and Edleen John, Diversity Manager at Morgan Stanley, participated in a roundtable, offering Edhec students their experiences and their expertise. Such matters as how their companies manage gender, cultural and ethnic diversity, specific initiatives taken to favour diversity and the prospects for diversity programmes in the workplace were analysed and debated before some one hundred students. “The fair was very well organized and students, who showed great interest, proved to be diverse, well taught and mature candidates”. says Jérémie Martin, Associate Recruiter at J.P. Morgan “We actually coupled the fair with a tailor made recruitment event shortly afterwards and hired three young graduates within the next months. We look forward to deepening further this efficient and pleasant relationship in the coming years.
