Why recruit at IMD?

You are looking for candidates with leadership potential who are ready to make an immediate impact and develop to the upper echelons of your company.

The goal of the IMD MBA is to develop reflective and responsible leaders who will transform organizations and contribute to society. We want to help our students develop the leadership skills which will help them to succeed not only at that first post-MBA job, but throughout their career. 

Our dedicated career development team works with each recruiting company to understand your company culture and identify the best talent for your immediate and future needs.

Global Talent Forum

Every year, IMD hosts a Global Talent Forum to give our MBA students and recruiters from companies around the world, an opportunity to network and discuss potential routes for international business careers.

Our MBAs

Before being admitted, our highly diverse students go through a rigorous assessment followed by a full background check conducted by an independent agency.

Our students come from all over the world and have an average of seven years of solid experience in diverse industries and functions. They usually have at least six months experience outside their home country and speak multiple languages.

Our one year MBA program runs from January to December each year, and upon graduation in early December our MBAs are ready to make an immediate impact.

How to recruit our MBAs

We collaborate closely with you to understand your hiring needs and recruiting style. A variety of recruiting and networking activities have been designed with your needs in mind.
