Career Curriculum

Students Learning Group

Our career curriculum and program calendar have been strategically designed to help you understand your career potential and professional options in the exciting world of business. 

We take a seven-phase approach to career learning and development, allowing you to build clarity and confidence about your career. This guided approach enables you to build your core career content as efficiently as possible and along the way, to practice storytelling, networking, and interviewing techniques that are critical to the business job search.

Undergraduates will enroll in the BMGT 367 Career Course, which is offered for credit in the second half of the freshman year. This is an amazing course that is taught by industry recruiters that represent employers who hire our students for internships and full-time jobs.

Graduate students work in an experiential format that prepares them for key networking interactions with alumni and recruiters, many facilitated by the Office of Career Services. Note that Full-time MBA students begin their career curriculum in the summer before they arrive on campus.
