Our “Back to School” shopping list


MBA Back to School

In communities all around the country, students are gearing up to go back to school. Whether they are hopping on the bus on their way to kindergarten, driving themselves to high school for the first time, or getting ready to start their last semester in college, this time of year is full of opportunity and excitement for students in all stages of education. This is certainly the case for the students in our network as well. Whether they are first-years or second-years, many of them are already searching the job boards, registering for advising appointments, and dreaming big about their future careers with some of the world's top employers!

Here at MBA Focus, we are also excited about the new academic year and 2014-15 recruiting season... so in order to celebrate the new season we present to you these seasonally-themed advanced search results from our network.
