Philips Technology Course for Masters

Another of those “sampler” courses from Philips aimed at “the top 5% of Masters Graduates”. Last time I wrote about these in January, they were advertising courses for Masters interested in Finance, Sales or Marketing. This time it’s for Technology, it runs from the 13-15th May ’08, and the closing date’s the 28th March.

They’re looking for anything from Mech / Elec Engineering, IT/Comp Sci, Maths, Physics or Chemistry. You must either have graduated with a Masters Degree in the last two years or will be graduating before 1 August 2008. It’s competitive to get on the course – you have to go through interviews beforehand – but if you get chosen to be there, and impress them during the 3 days in the Netherlands, they’ll be offering real jobs at the end of the course.


There are a couple of short videos (.wmv files) on their website which I think give you quite a good impression of what the course is all about. Have a look at them and see if you’re tempted :

Full details and how to apply are on the Philips careers website – and even if you don’t get offered a job at the end of it, you’ll get some great experience to use in future applications to show your business awareness, teamwork and problem solving.
