Connecting Graduates and Employers

The Crosby MBA Program is designed to prepare students for professional success and personal fulfillment. MBA Career Services works hard to connect you with companies where you will thrive.

Professional Development Program
A series of three, one-credit courses including career events, highlighted by a speaker series in which senior business executives and other leaders share their experiences and insights on a variety of issues. Small group interactions with guests are very common and students often join speakers for conversations at lunch or at receptions after the events.

Company Site Visits
These excursions are a fantastic opportunity for a group of students to visit a company for a day. This is a great way to prepare for the transition to the working world, and to begin building your personal network.
