The ESSEC-IMHI MBA in Hospitality Management focuses not only on providing students with the educational tools to succeed, but also giving them a variety of opportunities and mediums to connect with the greater IMHI network. One of these opportunities are monthly Get Togethers for current students and alumni. Once a month at the Hotel du Collectionneur Arc de Triomphe, students and alumni alike have the opportunity to interact with each other, share their experiences, and potentially build up contacts for current or future endeavors within the industry.
In the cool interior of the Purple Bar, first-year students share their internship experience with their second-year classmates who are soon to graduate, while in the outside courtyard, former classmates from previous years sit around a table catching up on each others’ professional lives. This setting provides a unique opportunity to further integrate oneself into the strong and vast IMHI network. For current students in particular, this is also a valuable platform to learn from the experiences of previous students and to bounce career ideas off of industry professionals in a relaxed and casual environment.
These Get Togethers have also expanded internationally, with groups of IMHIs around the world gathering reinforce the network. In the past six months alone, reunions have taken place in Geneva, Dubai, Singapore, Berlin, Montreal and Madrid, boasting strong attendance and positive reviews from attendees. With the continued expansion of the network year after year, it is expected that these gatherings will also continue to increase in frequency and value for the many people that make up the IMHI family around the globe.
