Career Development

Welcome to the Bren School Career Development website!  We hope you find it to be a valuable resource.

We have developed sections that address the specific needs of particular groups of people: Prospective Students, MESM Students, Ph.D. Students, Alumni, and Employers. Be sure to read our general information as well.

The Bren School not only offers cutting-edge multidisciplinary programs of study, but also provides students with the career skills they need to be successful in a changing marketplace. The Career Development Program plays a key role in helping students become marketable in the short-run and versatile and mobile in the long-run.

We are committed to providing personal service to our students and our external clients.  The Career Development Program consistently receives high ratings from students and continues to be viewed as one of the School's greatest strengths.  Students often comment on the quality of the service and the value of the personal one-on-one attention they receive. 

"One reason I was interested in attending Bren in the first place was the apparent strength of the Career Services Department. It was extremely important to me that I would be able to land a fulfilling job upon my completion of the MESM program.  I was not disappointed! The staff supported my job-search efforts from day one, and it paid off!"

Dakota Corey, MESM Graduate
