Make a career switch, advance in your current role, or start a new business venture. Wherever you're headed, the Jones MBA Career Center helps you get there.

Our mission is to prepare students for their job search and recruit companies to hire Full-time MBA students for summer internships and permanent employment.

We offer a variety of services to enhance your personal growth and job search skills.
We're dedicated to helping Full-time MBAs:

  • Develop a career strategy and identify your job search targets

  • Prepare you for the interview process and MBA job market

  • Identify opportunities for both summer internship and permanent employment

Student Advisement

Full-time MBAs benefit from the personal attention of the program including a 25:1 student to advisor ratio. You will be assigned to a corporate relations manager who will advise you throughout the two-year program. Your advisor will get to know you personally, and help you develop a career strategy to leverage your individual strengths.

Our career center staff has years of professional experience and understand industry dynamics. Because our corporate relations managers advise students and also manage relationships with companies recruiting MBAs, they know the skills recruiters are looking for and how to help you prepare for the MBA job market.
