MBA Career Fair

Our annual career fair is the largest MBA Career Fair in Asia and sees some of the largest global organisations showcasing their MBA hiring opportunities. For the last three years, we have seen nearly 100 corporate partners attend. We believe this flagship events gives students a chance to learn more about specific roles and provides the opportunity to build rapport with their prospective managers and colleagues as well as the HR teams. In the weeks preceding the Career Fair, we will deliver a range of workshops called the Career Compass which are designed to set you up for success on the actual day, including Developing your Elevator Pitch, Speed Networking and Effective Follow-up.

Live Job Board

With our large alumni and corporate partner network and the need for high performing talent around the world, the CPD team leverages this network to connect students and graduates with opportunities. These are centralized on a specific job board for MBAs available for all students to access. It is highly encouraged that you work with your Career Partner when applying for roles so they can provide you with greater context and introduce you to individuals within the network you would benefit from connecting with.


During the MBA, a combination of resources were available through the career office which supported me in getting my current regional role at Apple. Apple was one of the companies we met during the Singapore Career Trek. It was a great opportunity to chat with people across different teams, to learn about their business and to experience the company culture first-hand. The career office later organized a recruitment event with Apple on campus in Hong Kong. I took that opportunity to connect deeper with a few managers and asked them detailed questions about the role and the business. I was able to demonstrate my strong interest, fit and enthusiasm for the position, and was given the opportunity to proceed with an interview on the spot.
