Partnering For Success

Successfully launching your post-Fuqua career is the ultimate goal of the MQM program. Working with the Career Management Center (CMC) you'll define your path, prepare for recruiting, and connect with potential employers — a process that is as rigorous and immersive as your academics. Through your partnership with us, you'll be positioned for a lifetime of achievement with a career in finance, marketing, strategy, or forensics.
