The Jones MBA Career Center is consistently ranked in the top 5 MBA Career Services offices globally because of the employment success our students achieve. We are dedicated to helping you:

  • Develop a career strategy, identify job search targets, and explore MBA career options.
  • Prepare for the interview process and MBA job market.
  • Identify MBA recruitment opportunities for both summer internship and post-graduate employment.

Incoming students are assigned to a career advisor over the summer before their first year. This advisor will advise them throughout the two-year program, including getting to know them personally and helping them develop an MBA career search strategy that supports their specific desire and leverages their individual strengths.

Our career center team has decades of professional experience and understands industry dynamics. Because our career professionals advise students and also manage relationships with MBA employer recruitment teams, they know the skills recruiters are looking for and how to help students represent their best selves and prepare for success in a competitive job market.
