The Career Management Center
Fuqua’s difference comes from our Career Management Center (CMC), a team of professionals with industry and functional expertise who collaborate with professional students as well as executive recruiters and potential employers.
Career Coaches provide 1:1 coaching virtually, tailored to your needs. Fuqua's coaches help you navigate all aspects of successful career management, from the start of your program to beyond graduation.
Business Development staff are charged with educating organizations on the capabilities of our graduates, connecting prospective employers with Fuqua, and building relationships with key firms.
Student and Alumni Services teams provide relevant workshops, deliver online content, and build resources for current students and graduates.

Career Services System
Search job postings and find company contacts and other resources in the Fuqua Global Talent System (GTS), our internal career services website.
This database of country-specific career information gives you access to country career guides, regional city market guides, corporate profiles, employer directories, and a directory of international job listings.
Developed by the Association of Executive Search Consultants, Blue Steps offers career resources, expert advice, and a direct connection to more than 300 retained search firms in more than 70 countries. This is an exclusive online database available to students at a nominal fee.
This resource lists employee-written company reviews, salary data, and in-depth interview information, such as questions asked and the length of the interview process.
Employers and executive search professionals can search Fuqua's Resume Database based on a prospective employee's desired location and work authorization. You can also post a profile, resume, and job search preferences within the database.
Students may search Fuqua's database of 21,000+ business school alumni by program, graduation year, industry, company, job function, or geographic location. Once you graduate, you'll also have access to Duke University’s alumni database of more than 160,000.
From the start of your program, you’ll join Fuqua’s circle of over 21,000 professionals making their mark in a range of functions and industries worldwide—many of them looking for seasoned executives capable of bringing value to their organizations. There are 57 active Duke Regional Alumni Groups, including 16 in major cities outside the U.S., meaning you’ll benefit from local networking organizations as you move around the world. Upon graduation, you’ll automatically become a member of the Duke Alumni Association (DAA) with connections to 160,000 alumni globally, plus all the benefits, programs, and services provided by DAA.
International students should consider their work authorization when evaluating whether or not to apply to this program. While students with U.S. work authorization who are already working in the U.S. on a visa may find the program a good fit for their career goals, MQM: Health Analytics does *not* have a STEM designation or provide OPT. International students who are searching for OPT designation or who need to be sponsored to work in the U.S. and do not already have that sponsorship, should consider this circumstance when evaluating whether or not to apply to the program.
