Duke - The Fuqua School of Business

Corporate Visits

Learn the lay of the land before you walk in the door. On-site visits are an ideal way to get firsthand knowledge of a company or business industry. Tour the workspace, meet employees and managers through panel discussions, and get a sense of the type of work that is done there. You'll learn about the industry, job functions, and current business challenges from company representatives and leaders, some of whom are Fuqua alumni. 

Corporate visits to organizations in cities like Atlanta, New York, and Washington DC are held during spring and winter breaks. The class of 2012 will be visiting:

  • Ogilvy & Mather — an international advertising, marketing, and public relations agency
