UB MBA Advantage

At the University at Buffalo School of Management, your MBA experience begins before you even set foot in a classroom.

During our innovative orientation and professional development sessions, known as MBA Advantage, you will become acquainted with your classmates and begin to familiarize yourself with the team-based learning environment that is the backbone of our curriculum.                

You will complete initial assessments of your own strengths and weaknesses and work with the energetic staff of our Career Resource Center to develop a job-search strategy that you will fine-tune as your studies progress. And unlike orientations at most other business schools, MBA Advantage does not end after your first few days on campus. Each semester of your MBA education begins with informative and interactive seminars on such topics as the following:

  • Case analysis
  • Team-building
  • Globalization
  • Innovation and creativity
  • Sustainability
  • Effective compensation negotiation
  • Professional image management
  • Job-search techniques

Through MBA Advantage, you will develop skills that others obtain only through years of corporate experience.
