The speakers were Aishah Pathak, International Recruitment Senior Officer, Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore (Italy), Maite Osuna, Chiara Brambilla, and Federico Petrone, M.Sc. Management students. The discussion focused on how the Cattolica’s Master of Science in Management program can help students find jobs after graduation.

Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore is a prestigious, privately-held university with four campuses across Italy, and twelve faculties offering a diverse curriculum. Its Master of Science in Management program (M.Sc.) lasts two years, and includes many courses to choose from, and a customizable study plan. The university has 5 business labs to test your business acumen before entering the job market. It also partners with leading companies to provide practical training.

Job opportunities after graduation

Students looking for entry level jobs have several options during their second year. While first year courses concentrate more on theory, the second year is all about practice. Aishah Pathak adds:

In your first year you have the choice of customizing your study plan. And such flexibility is not offered by many universities and programs.

The webinar was joined by three second-year M.Sc. Management students, who all shared their experience and tips on how to get the best out of the Master of Science in Management program.

Practices makes perfect

For Chiara Brambilla, the practical experience that students receive during their modules, is invaluable. The experience she acquired has helped her land an internship in a luxurious eyewear company, where she works closely with the company’s trade marketing manager.

Field projects Vs. internships

In the video, Federico Petrone explains the main differences between field projects and internships, and why you should choose them according to your own preferences.

Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore offers internships in many ways: from its professors’ personal networks and contacts to its job posting portal. The university works with many leading companies who have internship programs, usually of three months’ duration. Students are given a specific task or duty to handle, and at the end they have to do a presentation.

Students can also choose from various field projects, just like Maite Osuna. She is working for three months with an Italian online retailer, where she was part of an ongoing project. Such projects provide opportunities for working within a company environment, balancing between theory and practice.
