Duke - The Fuqua School of Business

Career Fairs & Other Events

The Career Management Center participates in many interview forums and career fairs throughout the year. Many of these events are an excellent way for our employer partners to identify and interview candidates from a variety of top programs at one time. Companies participating in an interview forum will have the opportunity to engage in formal interviewing with pre-selected candidates, without the time and expense of travelling to each of the schools individually. Please see below for more information and contact cmc-info@fuqua.duke.edu or your sector manager to inquire about registration.

Duke partners with the MBA programs from UNC's Kenan-Flagler Business School, Wake Forest University's Babcock Graduate School of Management, and NC State University's Jenkins Graduate School of Management for the Carolina MBA Connection Career Fair. First and second year full-time and Executive MBA students attend and are interested in summer internships and full-time employment.

The Day in the Bay: West Coast Interview Forum

The Day in the Bay: West Coast Interview Forum takes place in the San Francisco Bay Area. Attendees include students from Fuqua and other top-tier MBA programs based in the eastern U.S. The event provides employers on the West Coast an opportunity to connect and interview students whose career search is geographically focused on the West Coast.

Just-In-Time Career Fair

The Just-in-Time Career Fair provides an opportunity to identify candidates for the most pressing full-time openings.

Duke Career Fair

Duke University's annual career fair attracts companies across all industries including, but not limited to, business, technology, engineering, education, and government. The career fair provides an opportunity for employers, students, and Career Center staff to meet and discuss companies, career opportunities, and effective recruiting strategies. By participating in the fair, employers will gain exposure to graduate and undergraduate students across all majors.


The two-part event, hosted by Duke's Pratt School of Engineering, the Department of Computer Science, and the Career Center, consists of a moderated panel discussion with technology industry leaders, including a question and answer period for students to inquire about tips and techniques for searching, interviewing, and choosing a job.  Following the panel discussion, there will be a networking reception.
