On February 11 we held more than 400 interviews for MBA corporate residency. This was an exceptional day for our students and a testament to the value our students deliver for our employers each year. What was striking this year was how many of the hiring managers interviewing for residency were alumni of the program.
I am so proud of their continued support of the D’Amore-McKim School of Business and our MBA students. Some of them are students I worked with for their corporate residencies and they are now advancing their careers with their employers. Interview day felt more like a reunion as former classmates reconnected between interviews and had some friendly competition vying to top talent in the new class.
It is so important to see our MBA alumni paying in forward. They are interviewing students, participating in networking events, joining students for executive luncheons, participating in panels in Career Management class and hosting site visits for our students. I am confident that one day the students in the current class will be doing the same things. Our engaged alumni set a strong example for our students.
The best way to thank those who helped you along the way is to pay it forward – help current students as they begin their professional journeys. Thanks to our awesome alumni!
