Student Experience

National Career Fairs and MBA Conferences

The annual national affinity and MBA conferences and career fairs are one of the best ways for graduate students and MBAs to get in front of many companies and recruiters who may not come to Baruch as well as other business schools. Apart from the MBA Veterans event, these conferences are open to all students of all backgrounds, so do not opt out because you think you will not be welcome or that the conference does not include you. All students of all backgrounds are welcome to attend. 

Since the conferences happen in different cities each year, attending them has travel and other costs involved. Be sure to check out the conference websites to see the list of companies attending, breakout sessions and other details so that you can best assess if attending a conference is right for you. In addition, read the Conference Tips in Handshake Resources to get more insight into the experience that past Zicklin students have had at the conferences.
