Build your career.

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.

Explore and plan your career path

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.

Develop the skills to fulfill your career goals

You’ll start your time at Broad at “boot camp”—a half-day engagement in which you’ll meet with professionals from across the industry to get an idea of what their work lives look like and what it takes to succeed in their settings. You want a seat in the C-suite? Find out how to get there.

Learn about potential employers from across the industry at company presentations and drop-in hours. Hone your knowledge by attending industry panels and recruiter panels.

Polish your personal presentation skills with resume development workshops, H1B visa workshops, an etiquette dinner, a pitch and mock career fair and webinars. Alumni and corporate partners will be available for practice interviewing to provide expert feedback to improve your performance.

You’ll be prepped for MSU-hosted and national career fairs, And you’ll be ready to talk to the recruiters who visit campus throughout the year.

It is the mission of the Broad career management team to provide world-class career coaching and education to help you build a comprehensive strategy that bridges your career goals to your professional reality.
