“CKGSB’s career services was very helpful. I even got a job offer with LVMH out of one of their on- campus sessions. As a PR professional with an MBA, I never had to look too long for a job. Still, the most important thing I got from the CKGSB Global MBA is the relationship I have with my classmates.”
