Career & Personal Development

The Career & Personal Development department provides service and assistance in career development and employment to International MBA and MSc students during their studies. Part-time students are typically in employment, but also have full access to tools and counseling on an ‘upon request’ basis. Although most focus is placed on curent students, the same broad range of facilities is available to alumni. Career development advisors also work specifically with alumni through the alumni association, the Voortgezette Compagnie van Verre (VCV). 

Our aim is to assist you in realizing your goals by laying down a solid foundation for your career management skills. In addition to this we create a platform which enables you to meet potential future employers. Our Career and Personal Development program is structured around the job search process and is divided into three phases: Know Yourself, know the job market, get the job. 
 
Mission
The CPD Center’s mission is to assist students in realizing their career objectives by laying down a solid foundation of their career management and personal branding skills, and by providing contact with the corporate world. In that capacity it is also a platform for contact with corporate relations, alumni and the Nyenrode business community as a whole. The CPD program and activities for targeted student groups are integrated as much and as early as possible in the curriculum to create awareness and an increased chance of success. We are well aware of the fact that the success of Nyenrode depends on the success of our graduates. Throughout the program, students are encouraged to assess their interests, abilities and strengths in order to meet their individual career aspiration. 
 
Our approach
The CPD program provided students with the tools and skills to develop themselves and their career, whether that means a new job, to grow in their existing organization or starting as an entrepreneur. In that light the CPD program offering is built with the job search process in mind and contains three phases:
  • Get to know yourself
  • Get to know the market
  • Get the job
Throughout, we use a combination of various events  and  workshops, career development tools and one-on-one coaching. To access our Career Center click here. It will take a few minutes to create an account.

Academic curriculum
The CPD program strives to integrate its activities as much as possible with the academic curriculum. One on one coaching for all Nyenrode students by CPD advisors, in addition to coaching as part of their studies, is offered on an upon-request basis.
