Duke - The Fuqua School of Business

Career Engagement Opportunities

Not all leadership- and career-building experiences are academic. In addition to all the general extracurricular activities offered, career-specific engagement activities like career fellowships, job search teams, and clubs give you opportunities to explore your talents, build valuable contacts, and contribute to the community. They are great ways to enrich your experience here at Fuqua while furthering your career objectives.

MBA job-search opportunities include:

  • MBA Career Fellows

    This diverse group of second-year students coaches first-year students through the internship process. As a result, these fellows bring with them a wealth of knowledge and experience they are eager to share. Their coaching approach is tailored to first-year students' individual needs and focuses on aligning job search requests with an overall career development plan, as well as emphasizing both on-campus and off-campus search strategies.
