Student Resources

 

Career Services

The School of Management has risen in the national rankings, and is among the elite business schools in America. In 2013, Bloomberg Businessweek ranked SOM 4th on its list of the Top Undergraduate Business Schools for return on investment (ROI is $10.23 of salary earned for every dollar of tuition spent). In addition, the publication ranked us 25th among public undergraduate business schools. On the graduate side, our MBA program received its highest rankings ever from U.S. News & World Report, which listed it at 47th among public institutions. That is a testament to the quality of the school's students and faculty. The Career Services Office prepares students for the very competitive job market, maintains connections with recruiters, and builds relationships with new employers.
