Ziff Graduate Career Services Center
The Ziff Graduate Career Services Center equips full-time MBA students for their career search with state-of-the-art resources and education.
One of the most important goals of the Ziff Center is to maximize students' chances for a successful career. The staff continually promotes full-time MBA students to the local and national business communities and strengthens relations with recruiters in order to secure the best possible career opportunities. We actively market these students to a broad array of companies from Fortune 1000 firms to entrepreneurial, regional and local companies.
We actively seek innovative opportunities to put our students in front of top companies, including MBA-focused career fairs, exclusive company networking events and national career fairs. In addition, many employers schedule on-campus information sessions and interview students throughout the year at the Ziff Center, while others post jobs on our Web site.
