Engage With Us

The MBA Career Center offers several opportunities for an organization to connect and develop relationships with MBA students. We work directly with your organization to determine your goals and create an engagement strategy that supports your vision and the career development of MBA students.

Our strong partnerships with the best minds in the industry are the distinguishing factor that sets the Jenkins MBA program apart. We welcome companies, businesses, and individuals whose expertise can enhance our students’ learning experience, and whose challenges we can help tackle with actionable solutions.

Team Up to Solve Challenges

The experiential education afforded through a Jenkins MBA is made possible through mutually beneficial relationships with organizations like yours. Students and faculty work hand-in-hand with hundreds of corporate, public accounting, government, and nonprofit partners to find solutions to real business challenges and facilitate learning.

Our coursework involves sharing research and applied experience both in and out of the classroom. If your company would like to provide projects, site visits, or shadowing experiences for students, we want to work with you.

Our accessible faculty and Career Management Center (CMC) are excellent resources for connecting with our talent pool. Please talk with us about sponsoring, hosting or attending student and alumni networking and career development events, or to mentor students from our program.

Corporate Support Opportunities 

Partnering with the Jenkins MBA Career Center we assist employers who desire to raise awareness of their organization throughout the year. We invite interested employers to help us help our students by participating in partnership opportunities. There are multiple opportunities to build your brand on campus while also helping to create meaningful connections with Jenkins MBA students. Our goal is to assist you as you recruit the best talent by providing you with direct access to the student body. Through corporate support, you expose your brand and leadership to a new audience of over 700 MBA students. Please use the link to view the NC State Jenkins MBA support 2022 /23 opportunities. 

Ways to Engage:

We invite you to meet our students at one of the following events (virtual or in-person). Each event is an opportunity to meet and get to know Jenkins MBA students and will allow you insight into recruiting the students. What may start as a casual conversation over coffee could lead to an internship or even employment. Even as COVID-19 restrictions begin to lift and in-person experiences return, employers say they will continue to offer online events for the increased accessibility virtual experiences provide.  We look forward to working with you either in-person or virtually.
