Each year, as part of our MBA Advantage professional development program, students participate in a simulated career competition, which recently won the Award of Excellence from the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE). From company research and preparation of a résumé and cover letter, to an actual interview with the sponsoring company, student teams are responsible for completing all the components of a genuine job search.
MBAs also have the opportunity to hone their analytical and problem-solving abilities through our annual MBA Case Competition. The event culminates with formal presentations from the team finalists to a panel of judges.
These competitions not only give students an in-depth look at our nationally known sponsors (firms such as Xerox, GE and Ernst & Young), but sponsors enjoy the opportunity to take a preliminary look at prospective new employees.
