Career Labs

Weekly during Mod I and II, our Learning & Development team spends time preparing first-year full-time MBA students for healthcare industry recruiting. This year, our career labs included career search topics as well as industry deep dives, including some with practitioners in the field. Our goal is to prepare students for applying to, interviewing with, and succeeding in healthcare industry jobs. Sample career labs: cover letters, behavioral and technical interview preparation, and mock interviews with second-year MBA students.
