2024-2025 Recruiting Guidelines:

The Fuqua Career Management Center operates under the principles outlined by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) in its Professional Standards for University Relations and Recruiting. All employers recruiting Fuqua students are expected to comply.

Students are required to attend class during scheduled times, no exceptions will be made for recruiting travel, events, or interviews. Work with your industry account manager to schedule your recruiting activities at times that align with student availability, minimizing academic conflicts.

First-year daytime students must stay in Durham, NC, to complete Spring Term II and final exams through the end of April. In late August, these same students must return to Durham, NC for pre-term activities. Therefore, internships should end by August 22, 2025, so these students can fulfill their academic obligations.

Extension, Rescinds, or Reneges

The fundamental terms of an employment offer—including annual salary, base signing bonus, performance bonus, relocation, and job function—must remain unchanged until the expiration date. Financial incentives encouraging students to commit before the deadline are permitted as long as incentives are small relative to the overall value of the offer and still allow the student a minimum of three weeks’ decision time.

Employers and students are expected to honor offers and acceptances of employment as serious commitments of intent to work/employ according to the terms of the offer. There are times when an employer may have to revoke an offer based on changing organizational or business needs. Similarly, there are times when a student’s circumstances change and they are no longer able to fulfill their obligation. While both rarely occur, each situation will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis for further action.

Daytime MBA Full-Time Offers | Deadlines

November 1, 2024 | If the offer is extended as the result of a summer internship, the job offer must be made in writing and remain open until November 1, 2024, or three weeks from the date the written offer is received, whichever is later.

December 1, 2024 | If the offer is extended prior to January 1, 2025, the job offer must be made in writing and remain open until December 1, 2024, or three weeks from the date the written offer is received, whichever is later.

MMS and MQM: Business Analytics Offers | Deadlines

Two-Week (Minimum) | Offers extended to an MMS or MQM student should be made in writing and remain open for at least two weeks from the date the written offer is received.  Please provide flexibility if a student requests a reasonable offer extension.

Working Professional Students and Fuqua Alumni | Deadlines

Students currently enrolled in one of the following programs are working professional students and do not follow the same academic calendar as students enrolled in our Durham-based programs:

  • Weekend Executive MBA (WEMBA)
  • Global Executive MBA (GEMBA)
  • Master of Quantitative Management: Health Analytics (MSQM: Health Analytics)
  • Master of Quantitative Management: Business Analytics-Online (MSQM: Business Analytics, including Accelerated MSQM)

As a hiring best practice, we recommend that all offers made to a working professional student or Fuqua alumnus or alumnae remain open for a minimum of two weeks from the date the written offer is extended. However, if the offer is a result of a campus interview or Career Management Center-facilitated event, please adhere to the expiration dates listed for Daytime MBA Full-Time offers.

Organizations may not use contact information obtained through employer presentations, job postings, candidate search, resume books, club events, or other recruiting activities to facilitate commercial selling or solicitation.

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education, including Duke. Recruiting organizations may only access information approved by students for distribution. This includes, but is not limited to, the resume database, registration to employer events, and application to job opportunities. No one affiliated with Duke University may give out student information to employers without the student’s explicit consent.

Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business forbids discrimination based on sex, race, color, religion, age, national origin, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, arrest record, or disability. Learn more through the Duke University Office for Institutional Equity.

In compliance with the Immigration Reform and Control Act, interviews must be made available to all interested students who meet the permanent work authorization requirements for other than practical training purposes, regardless of their citizenship. If United States citizenship is required by your company, please indicate this requirement in the job description of any position for which you are recruiting. Please see the US Department of Justice “Best Practices for Recruiting and Hiring Workers” for more information and guidelines.

The Career Management Center is committed to upholding principles set by the Fuqua Community Standard in all academic and nonacademic endeavors. Student and employer behavior in the recruiting process, whether on- or off-campus, must uphold the fundamental principles of mutual respect, honesty, integrity, and professionalism at all times.
