Key Activities

Career Exploration Activities

Our career search actually begins before the first day of classes. In April-May, incoming Master of Management students engage in career exploration activities led by the Career Development Office. These activities equip incoming students with crucial knowledge about different types of careers, including consulting, marketing, and corporate finance. Leveraging this, students engage in a selection of dynamic self-assessment exercises to further define the type of careers that best fit their interests, values, and skills.

Workshops Tailored for Master of Management Students

Once students arrive in Ann Arbor in mid-June for the on-campus start of the program, they participate in a series of intensive, hands-on workshops designed to provide a foundation for a successful job search. Workshop topics include resume and cover letter writing, networking skills and tips from former recruiters. These workshops are customized to the unique characteristics and attributes of MM students. A successful career search requires self-reflection, commitment, and a plan of attack. The summer programming for MM students led by the Career Development Office has one goal: help students reach their goals.
