Companies are increasingly recruiting MBA graduates on a global basis and a growing number of EMBA graduates are looking to their schools’ career services offices to help them find jobs.
York’s Schulich School of Business has responded to these challenges by introducing a new model of career services for its Career Development Centre (CDC). Leading the Centre is the recently appointed Rob Hines, who has more than 25 years of senior leadership experience in both the domestic and international markets in Toronto, London and Chicago. Hines officially assumed the role of executive director of the Schulich CDC last month.
“Our school has been very successful in continually increasing our global footprint and presence over the years,” says Dean of Schulich School of Business Dezsö J. Horváth. “The appropriate placement of our graduates is a critical element of that success, and our school must keep pace with this reality by building on our placement success here in Canada to work directly with leading organizations around the world, particularly with parent companies and global headquarters.”
Hines has direct board and corporate experience in operations, financial management, strategic planning and governance. Previously, Hines served as the managing partner, global operations, for Heidrick & Struggles and was responsible for global oversight of regional operations in Asia Pacific, Europe, the Middle East, Latin America and North America.
Prior to joining Schulich, Hines was managing partner of the global executive search firm CTPartners, Canada, since 2010. He is also a member of Schulich’s International Advisory Council.
