Annual MBA Veterans Career Conference

The UConn School of Business also supports our veterans by paying for all expenses to send them, if they wish, to the Annual MBA Veterans Career Conference.

This conference was held in Chicago. It’s a 3-day event with companies like Google, Microsoft, Accenture, Deloitte, Goldman Sachs, Shell Oil and Johnson & Johnson in attendance.

“The MBA Veterans Conference was an incredibly informative event from start to finish. There were approximately 250 MBA candidates, with a complete mix of first and second year students, as well as all military branches of service. I was able to speak to many recruiters, and all of the companies on my target list.”
