your career

MBA students in a classroom exercise.

At Notre Dame, career development is personal.  You develop a real relationship with your career coach, who gets to know you as a person.  Our career coaches are all industry experts with 10+ years of industry experience.  Our coaches also serve as relationship managers to MBA hiring sectors and build strong ties between Notre Dame and recruiters.  Notre Dame MBA Career Development is unique among top MBA programs in its commitment to meet individually with every student to help them achieve their career goals.

The backbone of a student job search is the career development process called The Notre Dame MBA Career Catalyst.  This process helps students identify and secure a successful career.
