Uncovering the Bright Spots in the Post-MBA Pandemic Job Market

Tony Somers, director of employer engagement at HEC Paris, expects to see growth in public sector jobs for MBA students as governments pump unprecedented stimulus into their economies. “Depending on how things develop in the next six months, governments will have a much more interventionist role in daily life, therefore creating more employment in roles that are more strategic and lucrative for graduates,” he says, in an interview with Find MBA. 

Somers adds that currently, the financial technology sector (fintech) is a growing area of employment, particularly in retail banking in more developed countries as bank branches are closed and services forced online because of the Covid crisis.
