3rd Annual Leadership Conference & Exposition – 2011

“The 3rd Annual NAAMBA Conference was a valuable experience for Hult MBAs. Nearly 50 students attended the Career Fair and made connections with recruiters from prestigious companies such as PepsiCo, General Mills, Target and more for positions both in the U.S. and around the world. The professional development sessions were high-level and interesting, and included C-level speakers from Goldman Sachs, PepsiCo, Ethan-Allen and IBM who were very open and gave great advice. Hult International Business School will definitely return as a sponsor in the future. We’re looking forward to bringing students from our Shanghai campus to Singapore this January!”
