On-campus recruiting can involve a number of different activities: job postings, interviews, information sessions, and class presentations. Our most active recruiters are involved with all of these, but most employers participate in one or two throughout the school year. 

Fall 2014

Tuesday, September 2, 2014 - First Day of Classes

Monday, September 16, 2013 - Company Information Sessions Begin

Friday, September 20, 2013 - Annual Graduate Business Association Golf Outing
MBA students, alumni, faculty, staff, and friends of the Wisconsin School of Business use this annual event to build their career networks. Pairings for the outing will be created based on graduate centers of career specialization, and corporate sponsorships will be available to increase your company's exposure. For more information or to RSVP, please contact Megan Monaghan (MBA 2014).

  • Location: The Oaks Golf Course in Cottage Grove, Wisconsin

Week of September 23, 2013 (Tent.)  - Fall Career and Internship Fair 
The MBA Career Management Center will be co‐sponsoring the campus‐wide career and internship fair. Though it has traditionally targeted undergraduates, companies with broad student targets and multiple recruiting areas can increase exposure by targeting many students at once. By registering for the fair and selecting MBA as a target population, we will direct interested students to you at the fair. We would strongly encourage you send representatives who are very familiar with the MBA-related roles.
