The SGH Career and Alumni Centre strives to advance the careers of the past and present SGH students. The Centre is also responsible for shaping and developing relations with the SGH alumni, as well as for managing the SGH Career Service – a platform for communication between prospective employers on the one hand and students and alumni on the other, providing up-to-date work placement, internship and employment offers, as well as valuable information concerning, among others, recruitment process, job looking, in-service training and preparation of application documents. The Portal also facilitates the consultation process with the SGH career counsellor.
It is only natural that SGH, being a leading business economic university in Poland, operates in close partnership with numerous business entities. This cooperation applies not only to education and research, but also to issues connected with management of the institution.
Owing to the cooperation with our partners, SGH students may choose from a wide range of work placements and internships available during their course of study. It is also much easier for them to find employment in esteemed companies. SGH partners also organise numerous workshops, lectures, and meetings at our University, which enable our students to meet with actual business practitioners. The SGH also organises study visits in companies and manages various research projects and conferences. As a part of the partnership, we also develop the University’s infrastructure and know-how in the field of management and administration of the SGH.
Due to cooperation with the members of the SGH Corporate Partners Club, students may take part in Studying Practically programme that offers courses organized by SGH faculty members together with business partners. Apart from special semester-long courses, the SGH Partners hold workshops and meetings for students.
