Navigate Your Career

A Wisconsin MBA gives you a competitive advantage, whether you’re planning to seek an external position or advancement at your current company. Career management coaching complements your education by developing your skills in personal marketing, networking, and job search or promotion strategies.

Even students who have a firm career plan in place can benefit from our career management services. Working with a career coach can be helpful for those who simply want to reconfirm their goals, conduct a gap analysis of their qualifications, or develop a long-term career plan. Our goal is to support you on your path to lifelong career fulfillment.

Jennifer Seeker Conroy, MBA

"I took advantage of a number of the career management offerings while I was in the program, including the career workshops and coaching on my résumé and LinkedIn profile. I continued to use the services after I graduated to pursue a new career. The career management team gave me guidance on how to negotiate a salary and signing bonus. As a result, I felt really confident going into that negotiation."
