Third Edition of Financial Economics Company Treks

The EDHEC Career Centre Organised 3rd edition of Company Treks in London

Written on 26 Oct 2016.


 

Last week, EDHEC Financial Economics students had the opportunity to travel to London but no time was spent sightseeing or shopping. Close to 90 EDHEC students were invited to join the company treks to BlackRock, Commerzbank, Moody’s, EDF Trading, Houlihan Lockey, Tradition, Nomura, Citi, Leonteq, BNP Paribas, M&G & Bloomberg.
 

We are constantly trying to find new ways to bring students closer to recruiters and to offer them networking platforms that can result in internship or job opportunities

, explains Fernanda Diaz, Career Centre Director for EDHEC Master Programmes.

“Most of our recruiters have a robust campus presence, which allows them to strengthen their employer brand and attract the best talent. Treks are just another approach to allow students to “taste” the culture and work environment first hand.”

The purpose of the treks was to bring together students, line managers and HR representatives in a format that enables networking and one-on-one interactions. Each trek lasted approximately half day, including a networking breakfast or tea/coffee break, business presentations and meetings with different teams. Some treks also included a visit to the trading floor, an exciting moment for those students craving for adrenaline.
