The MBA Career Center is a resource for employers to meet their hiring needs with qualified, talented MBA students for both corporate residency and full-time opportunities. We strive to provide employers with meaningful opportunities to engage with students. Learn more about:

Corporate Residency

Corporate residency is a critical component of our Full-time MBA program. Full-time MBA students complete a six-month corporate residency after their first year of MBA classes. This provides students an opportunity to apply what they have learned in class while gaining valuable experience. For employers it is an opportunity to bring talented, hard-working and enthusiastic students to perform specific assignments or projects. Our students offer you experience in finance, marketing, and supply chain/operations to help you address your critical business issues. Students work on corporate residency June through December. We begin posting corporate residency positions in January, and the first day of interviews is at our MBA Career Fair.

Full-time Employment

MBA students and alumni seeking full-time opportunities provide a great pool of talent for your organization. We are happy to work with you to meet your specific needs. We can post full-time opportunities for you at no cost, at any time. Students can apply online, and we will send you a customized resume book of interested students. We have interview space available in our office suite if you wish to interview on campus. By posting your position with the MBA Career Center, you will have access to a large pool of talented students and alumni from our full-time and part-time programs. We can assist you in finding qualified, talented individuals to meet your business needs.

Key Recruiting Opportunities

The Northeastern MBA Career Fair is held each year in February. There is no charge to the company for participation. We also have interview space reserved for companies who wish to interview while they are onsite. This is the first opportunity to interview for corporate residency positions. Students and alumni participate to seek both corporate residency and full-time opportunities.

Corporate Participation

  • Executive Luncheons – Take advantage of this opportunity to network with six first – year MBA students. Guests join up to six students for a discussion over lunch to discuss your company, your industry and your personal career path. Students will have questions for you as well. This is a valuable opportunity for students to practice their networking skills while learning more about a variety of organizations. Executive luncheons are offered October – December.
  • Career Management Class – Join us for a panel presentation in Career Management to help students prepare for their corporate residency job search as they explore a variety of career options. Great opportunity to share your experience.
  • Guest Speakers – Classes and clubs often are seeking guest speakers to share real life experiences with the issues being discussed in class.
  • Mock Interviews – There is no substitute for practice and feedback. We invite experienced interviewers to join us for a round of mock interviews with students to prepare them for the career fair. This practice and feedback is extremely helpful to the students as they prepare for job interviews.
  • Networking Breakfasts – Join students by concentration for a networking breakfast.
