Harvard and Stanford MBAs Are Using This Brazilian Network To Land Jobs In Latin America...

Deep in the Latin America’s biggest economy, a network of MBAs from some of the US’s top schools is stirring. Founded by Patricia Volpi over a decade ago, the exclusive MBA Alumni Brasil community has grown to nearly 2,200 members, from 50 business schools including Harvard Business School and Stanford GSB. “The group has really taken off,” says the Indiana, Kelley School graduate. MBAAB helps graduates network and find MBA jobs through company visits, “happy hour” drinks doos, from São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, and Belo Horizonte to Miami, New York and London, and job postings from companies such as Bloomberg, Microsoft and Nestlé. “The exchange of job opportunities drove the group,” says Patricia, who has worked at Frost & Sullivan, Telefonica and GNext, a recruitment firm. But Brazil is mired by a political crisis and a faltering economy. Its president, Dilma Rousseff, has been suspended and its central bank forecasts GDP to contract 3.5% in 2016. “One of the challenges was finding jobs that met MBAs’ salary expectations,” Patricia says. Below, BB speaks to two members of the MBAAB network working in São Paulo. A Hub For Entrepreneurs With a large financial center, well-regarded universities, and local heroes such as Dafiti, the e-commerce business backed with $250 million of venture capital, the city has a growing start-up ecosystem. “São Paulo is the best region in Brazil for entrepreneurs,” says Ric Scheinkman. The local entrepreneur is managing director and founding partner of Harpia Capital, an advisory and investment firm. He plans to study for an MBA at University of Miami, and says the MBAAB network has introduced him to top-level executives and entrepreneurs in São Paulo. “It has some of the best and brightest of the Brazilian business community,”...

Prepare for an MBA Internship

By January, some first-year MBA students have taken the first step in securing their careers as business leaders: They’ve accepted summer internship offers. Employment is such a critical part of the b-school experience that an MBA program’s career office usually starts working with first-year students before they arrive on campus and continues working with them — on resume writing, interviewing and other skills — after they find summer employment. “Once you accept an internship, the process doesn’t stop,” says Mark Brostoff of Washington University in St. Louis’ Olin Business School. Brostoff is the associate dean and director of the business school’s Weston Career Center. In areas such as consulting or banking, he says, it’s not unheard for students to already have internships lined up. [Target MBA jobs that pay well and require fewer hours.] Prospective students think about their career trajectory even before they get accepted into school. Many MBA programs require applicants to submit a resume, which can give the admissions team a sense of what students are like as employees. At the Yale School of Management, the admissions office wants to identify people who will not only do well academically but who also have high professional potential after they graduate, says Bruce DelMonico, the school’s assistant dean and director of admissions. “We want to see some evidence of excellence in your professional background.” Students who already know where their summer internship will be, and those who will find one in the coming months, can use spring semester to prepare for work. MBA candidates who find out early can take classes that are in line with their job, says Bukky Olowude, a 2014 MBA graduate of Yale. While a student, Olowude was a career coach for first-year students....
