We care about your career

The Professional MBA program offers a Career Advancement Center to help you maximize the return on your MBA for yourself and your employer. We work with you to develop your personal career advancement plan focusing on internal opportunities and position growth while in the PMBA program, as well as future career paths and moves. We help you leverage your academic learning with your career goals.

Our Career Advancement Approach

Our goal is for all PMBA students to graduate with the expertise and a plan to manage and advance their careers. Career advancement doesn’t happen because you show up at work and do a good job. It requires planning and action. It’s a lifelong activity that requires forethought to be successful. Become the proactive master of your career, not a recipient of what may be offered to you. Our six-phase approach:

  1. Assessment (know yourself), goal setting and short-term planning
  2. Personal branding, messaging and marketing materials development
  3. Making the sale and closing the deal, whether internal or external
  4. Proactively exploring new roles, meet with leaders in the community and embrace opportunities to advance your career (including networking)
  5. Pre-graduation career advancement planning that leverages employer and community relationships and resources
  6. Expert support from Alumni Career Services after you graduate
