Today, you’ll find our alumni in important roles at some of the world’s most influential companies. Job placement success is rooted in the fact that Broad is renowned for producing thoughtful, dynamic and team-focused professionals. From the start of the program, Broad MBAs are supported as they shape their future professional careers.
It’s one of the main reasons you chose to pursue an MBA degree. Every student in the program takes an intensive course focusing on the key skills needed to sell yourself at national career fairs or in a one-on-one chat with a visiting employer.
First-year MBAs are assigned a second-year MBA coach to provide personalized feedback and advice, which complements a career management class. This includes resume and cover letter reviews, elevator pitch practice, mock interviews and sharing of insights from personal experiences.
You’ll have additional workshops available to develop skills in job negotiations and case-style interviewing.
And you’ll have your career mentor on call to help you diagnose your needs and walk with you through the process from company research to position acceptance.
