Executive Career Management

Executive Career Management

You can start using the vast resources of Cox's dedicated MBA Career Management Center from the moment you enroll. That's the time to start targeting your career goals and mapping a strategic plan, and we're here to help you. From personal branding and coaching, to job search, our mission is to make sure you achieve yours. And the help doesn't end at graduation. After all, the world measures the success of Cox degree by the success of our graduates and alumni.

A career advisor helped guide me in a career switch after graduation. The advice was invaluable, and having an advisor who understands career needs is such a great benefit.

  • Career Coaching

    You’ll meet regularly with a job coach during your first year and also during year two — if your internship hasn’t already landed you a job offer. Together with your coach, you’ll:

    • Pinpoint areas for your development.
    • Develop your personal brand.
    • Set and fine-tune your goals, and map a career path that includes target companies.
    • Boost your job search skills.
    • Prepare for internships and job interviews.

    Post-graduation, our coaches support you as you advance and succeed. And if later in your career you decide to take a different path, you can turn to the CMC to help make that transition.
