Alumni at Fuqua play an important role in connecting students and other alumni to great career opportunities. Some of them return to campus to conduct company presentations, hold office hours, attend networking events, and interview students for internships and full-time roles. Others will post job openings in our database or reach out directly to the Career Management Center staff for help with a targeted search. These alumni are our "recruiting champions." They lead their own enterprises or are proactively involved with their organizations' talent acquisition teams. They also recognize that bringing on more Fuqua talent is a way to have a positive impact on student and alumni careers and bring value to the organization. Visit our website to learn more about how you can become a recruiting champion.
In addition to the traditional Daytime MBA population, who on average have 5-7 years of experience, talent can be found along the entire spectrum from entry-level to the more experienced executive.
For entry-level roles, students in the Master of Management Studies (MMS) program develop concrete business skills and capabilities, and are well-prepared for roles in finance, marketing, operations, consulting, and general management.
Students in the working professional programs, which include the Cross Continent MBA, the Weekend Executive MBA and the Global Executive MBA, normally have over 10 years of experience. Ready to take the next step in their careers, they are advancing their business skills, leadership potential and broadening their perspectives, and are prepared to fill senior management and executive roles.
In addition, Fuqua alumni can be found at nearly every career stage, and similar to the current student population, they represent a diverse global community and range of job functions and industries. On average, professionals will change careers three times and transition 5-7 times over the course of their work lives. Because of this, many of our alums should and do circle back to Fuqua and the Fuqua network to explore possibilities. The Career Management Center can help alumni connect to other alumni with senior-level and executive experience who offer leadership capability, a significant track record of success, and functional or industry depth.
