Employer Relations

Graduate career services works hard to connect you with companies where you will thrive. Employers are invited to campus and students have the opportunity to travel to companies several times each semester.

  • Site Visits: Graduate students and employers are connected through company site visits, which occur two-three times per semester for Crosby MBA students. Past site visit cities include Kansas City, St. Louis, Denver, Dallas, and Chicago, where students visited companies like Anheuser-Busch, AT&T, Toyota, Sprint, and Dish Network.
  • Company Conversations: Employers are invited to campus to share information with students about their company, company culture, internship opportunities, and more. These small group sessions are a great way to discover potential employment opportunities.
