2013 Student Testimonials
Yan Yan, Fisher 2nd Year MBA Student:
"Asian MBA is a great chance to explore the working opportunities not only in US but also in Asian area. The speak sessions on Friday exposed the candidates to recruiters from various industries, which made the trip much more meaningful than a pure job fair. Staying in the same hotel where the career fair held enabled us to stay later and talked with the key persons from companies."
Jun Xu, Fisher 2nd Year MBA Student:
"AMBA is a great event for Asian graduates who target to return to Asian after graduated to interact with multinational companies."
Yong Han, Fisher 2nd Year MBA Student:
"Asian MBA conference provides a great opportunity for Fisher students going out and exposing themselves to the real life business world. Beside the career fair, I really like the keynote speakers' presentations which help me to better understand what I want to be, not only in the job selection, but also in the long-term career development."
Yi-tsung Lee, Fisher 2nd Year MBA Student:
"My Asian MBA conference started from the networking breakfast. During that breakfast, I met several Wells Forgo recruiters and a portfolio manager from my hometown, Taiwan. We had a long talk about each other’s background and some baseball stuffs. This topic successfully shorted the distance between us. Then, I attended several keynote speeches and tried my best to talk with speakers from IBM, Eli Lilly, and A.T Kearney. All of them provided me some advices on career path, the importance of finding a mentor, and how to stand yourself out if you only have the working experience on some small and local companies."
