Join our community of Part-Time MBA students, staff, and alumni for this on-campus event designed specifically for individuals interested in the Carlson Part-Time MBA Program. As one of the most essential aspects of an MBA program experience, personal networking skills are key to success. This event will enable you to leave with the confidence to pursue your MBA goals with advanced networking skills that you can apply immediately in any professional setting.
Please park in the 19th or 21st Avenue Parking Ramps next to the Carlson Building. We are happy to provide parking vouchers for these locations upon check-in at the event.
Networking is a skill that takes practice. At this event our career coaches will provide you with a brief introduction on how to best position yourself while networking to get the most out of any experience. During the speed networking activity you will have time to practice your introductions with others.
To best prepare beforehand, take some time to reflect on your own personal 'elevator pitch' before you arrive. Think through your 30 second story, and what kind of information you would like to share with others that is most applicable in the B school environment.
Heavy appetizers, dessert and refreshments will be served during the course of the event.
Attire for this event is business casual.
