Resources for Students

The Career Development Centre (CDC) is dedicated to bridging companies with MBA graduates. We help students identify career interest and develop a career plan. We also facilitate various activities to enhance communication between companies and students. As an advisor to MBA participants, one of the CDC’s main responsibilities is to help students find their career instead of landing a job.

Career counselling is offered to students on an individual basis. The CDC consultants provide personalised advice and help students identify strengths and weaknesses, develop career strategy and planning, as well as improve job-searching skills such as résumé composition and interview.
