ABC Panel “How to Launch Your Career”

February 18, 2013

Purdue University enjoys a good reputation in engineering for a long time, now as Krannert becomes stronger and stronger, a lot of talented undergraduates majoring in engineering are considering to take MBA courses or to pursue an MBA degree.

However, they do not have much information about the MBA courses and the career path of an MBA with an engineering background. The ABC’s panel on one hand is to provide a chance for them to communicate with our MBA students with engineering background, to get enough information to make a wise career choice; on the other hand is to attract more great candidates for our MBA program.

Asian Business Club is coordinating to hold a MBA panel for undergraduate engineering students on Tuesday, Feb 19th from 6:00pm to 7:30pm at Rawls 2058.  Any Krannert graduate students who are interested in the panel’s experience are welcome tojoin.
