The SZABIST Executive Development Center (EDC) is steadily contributing towards building and developing business, and information technology graduates geared towards becoming the corporate leaders of tomorrow. The Center facilitates SZABIST students and alumni in all their academic and professional ventures to help them climb the ladder of corporate success.
EDC ensures that students have timely access to information on the latest jobs and internship opportunities by acting as a liaison between them and the corporate world. It coaches students to shine in employee assessments by advising them on resume writing and interview skills. It is responsible for arranging workshops, seminars, career fairs and publishing the annual Graduate Directory to enhance students networking.
Managing relations with SZABIST alumni is a priority of EDC. It provides a platform to facilitate and streamline interaction among SZABISTs graduates by building mutually beneficial networks for mentoring, exploring placement opportunities, and organizing guest speaker sessions, seminars, and sponsorships. It maintains a thorough and comprehensive online database of the alumni to keep their information updated. The alumni are kept involved the whole year round through different events and social activities. Alumni are regularly invited for mentoring sessions on the Alumni Ambassador Show broadcasted on ZABFM 106.6, and as guest speakers and trainers to mentor and guide the final year students. Besides academic engagements, an alumni reunion is organized by the EDC every year. Its latest initiative is the launch of SZABIST Alumni Global Association (SAGA).
