Will you be releasing the names of the consulting representatives that will be attending this event?
Our disclosure is that this is not an event with formal booths; thus, some consultants will be participating in a personal capacity and would prefer to not have their contact information advertised prior to the first contact at the event. On the night of, we encourage you to ask for business cards or contact information of representatives that you do meet!
Given that it will be my first time to attend a network event, do you have any advice on what I should bring with me (e.g. resume, cover letter) and what should I wear?
You are not required to bring your resume as the representatives are already provided with student resumes. As for what you should wear, business casual attire is recommended. When you meet those representatives, you could ask about the company, their day-to-day activities, what they like vs. dislike about their job, how to progress in the company, what got them interested in consulting, etc and see how the conversation flows from there. It’ll be semi-formal and you can ask them for their business cards/LinkedIn contact info if you’re interested in getting in touch.
miniMBA: Business Fundamentals course
I stumbled upon your program in a Google search. Is this program available to everyone, or only to current graduate students?
Everyone is welcome to apply, but spots are competitive and priority is set to graduate students completing their degree in the next two years.
Is a course audit possible? What is the policy for missing classes to receive the certificate?
We usually do not allow course audits, there are usually space constraints. Also, due to the nature of the course, allowing students who have not paid to sit in through course content creates an unfair environment for students who have paid and are working towards a certificate. The typical number of classes required to receive a certificate is 85-90% (allowance to miss 1 class), however this is adjusted on a course-by-course basis.
