Veronica Garcia, currently a student of the One-Year MBA program at Hult London Postgraduate, said:

“I really liked the way that Mars explained the business environment, I can totally relate to their graduate trainees as when I started my MBA I had firm plans of where I wanted my career to go and like her, my mindset has now shifted. They pointed out some great opportunities and how to grow, as I am massively on my MBA program, as an individual, and as part of a team.”

Josh Franklin, Senior Director of Corporate Relations at Hult said:
“This is a great example of how Hult is striving to be the most relevant business school in the world, creating valuable relationships with exactly the caliber of recruiter that fits with the job-ready, internationally mobile student profile that we represent. The speakers were candid and willing to share their experiences of their own career development, and aspects of the Mars Graduate Trainee Programme – I know that many of the students are keen to get their applications in now!”
