Many candidates enroll in graduate business programs to change careers, change their role, or change industries. All students advance their careers by developing insight and expertise in new disciplines. The Feld Career Center’s philosophy is based on building trusted relationships to help students identify their unique value and high-level skills and guide them to potential employers.
Regardless of your reasons for enrolling in the School of Management, successful career development depends on having the knowledge necessary to define your goals, understanding and positioning your value to potential employers, and properly managing your search. Approaching career development strategically and carefully leads to success.
The MBA-Level Candidate-Driven Search
Your career consultant will help you identify your core competencies and coach you to become market-ready for informational interviews and the kind of networking that leads to offers. You’ll partner with your career consultant throughout your time at SMG to continuously refine objectives, identify the right fit, and balance your search in parallel with your academic obligations. The School’s alumni are an invaluable resource in this process.
Our philosophy of building trusted relationships extends to our partner employers through our Corporate Relations team. The team brings many high-profile employers to the School, who specifically recruit our MBA candidates for leadership development programs and finance, marketing, strategy, and consulting roles.
