Recruiting and Hiring our Students and Grads
Potential employers can make connections and establish working relationships with Oregon MBA students through the sponsorship of applied consulting projects, featuring your firm as a guest speaker, mentoring students through our Career Insights Network, and as an executive in residence. Through these outlets, our industry partners discover the next generation of business leaders. We strongly encourage our partners in industry to join us during the academic year in order to raise the visibility of their firms.
Alternative venues also exist for recruiting firms to engage our students, including hosting an information/recruiting session, taking part in an industry panel discussion series, participating in practice interviews and resume critique sessions, or hosting a group of eligible students on site. All of these have been highly effective in raising the profile of firms and making early connections with our students.
We also strongly encourage MBA students to seek internships to supplement academic study with practical experience in private, public, and nonprofit organizations. Assistance in landing the right internship is always available. Interns can be of great value to employers who have short-term project needs during the summer. About 85 percent of Oregon MBA students participate in internships. These typically involve business planning, market research, product development, event activation, social media, financial analysis, software improvements, logistics, and event management.
