My Schedule is Full! It’s Campus Recruiting Time

So, friends, we are officially in full-tilt recruiting season! Company representatives (and usually some alumni) are visiting our little corner of the world to show what their companies have to offer and what kinds of jobs they have available. These presentations are usually followed by a day of interviews for the afore-mentioned job opportunities. Doing the math with my hp12c calculator (that I bought for school and now use as a paperweight), I have calculated that ambitious students can have up to 10 interviews a week! Most don’t, but there is a buzz around campus about who is interviewing for what positions.

The MBA Career and Industry Night Experience

Both alumni and contacts of USC Marshall are gracious enough to come onto campus after their busy workday, and participate in multiple roundtable sessions with students. They share their work experiences and answer questions in small groups. This is an invaluable learning experience for MBA students, and just one touch point in maintaining relationships with these companies.

Reaching Out: One Woman at a Time

Coming to the U.S. and being selected as a Forté Fellow by Kelley changed a lot for me.

Why You Should Consider An MBA

What ultimately makes an MBA special is the opportunity to re-experience something utterly unique: a return to the university, an environment rigged for learning, exploration, and connection. Escaping from the grind of professional life, you have an opportunity to rejoin an environment designed to help you develop academically, personally, professionally.

Which Application Round Should You Target?

Every admissions officer I spoke to gave me the same advice about timing: Don’t submit your application until you are completely ready. If you want to retake the GMAT to get a higher score, or if you need a few more weeks to polish up your resume and essays, take advantage of the opportunity to apply later.
