Engaging with Katz Career Management

Talent is the heart of a successful organization. The objective of the Katz Career Management Center is to provide companies with graduates from a cutting-edge business school program who can add value to their organization on day one. We work with students in the MBA program, as well as students in our five Specialized Masters degree programs—Master of Accounting, Master of Finance, Master of Customer Insights, Master of Supply Chain Management and Master of Management Information Systems.

The Katz Career Management Center tailors our services to fit your organization's needs. Think of us as a full-service staffing firm for MBA and Specialized Master's degree candidate hiring — but without the fees. The Career Management Center is located in Mervis Hall, Suite 301. Our staff is happy to answer any questions and to assist you with all of your needs concerning the University, the Career Management Center, and Katz students.

Recruiter Guidelines

Poets & Quants named Katz a “Best-Kept Secret” among recruiters. To that end, the Katz Career Management Center strives to provide best-in-class service to recruiting partners and masters level business students. We ask that all parties adhere to the following policies and guidelines.

All recruiters, whether on- or off- campus, should give students until:

  • December 1, 2016, or three weeks from receipt of official offer letter, whichever is longer, to respond to a full-time job offer.
  • February 24, 2017, or two weeks from receipt of official offer letter, whichever is longer, to respond to an internship offer.

Students may accept or reject offers prior to the specified deadlines, but should not be compelled to do so.

Companies should not encourage students to renege on previously accepted job or internship offers or rescind offers they have previously extended to our students; doing so could result in the loss of on-campus recruiting privileges.

It is requested that recruiters follow up with all students regarding the status of their candidacy in a timely manner.
