Career Services for Alumni

We strive to cultivate connections among our alumni via the resources listed in the Alumni section. You'll also find a section dedicated to recruitment from the business school, which is another valuable resource for alumni. 

Job board: This superior online resource helps the business school's alumni search through job openings from leading companies around the world. 

A comprehensive online library of industry guides on careers, company and industry profiles can be found in the Gilbert and Ruth Whitaker Business Information Center (BIC). Here, you may research company and industry information using a variety of reference materials.
