Expand Your Network & Your Possibilities

Attend one of two (but why not both?) Friday evening Master’s Pub sessions during the fall and spring semesters. Enjoy free beer, wine, soft drinks and pizza while consuming knowledge and networking. Featured guest speakers are stars from the Twin Cities business world.

Get help managing your career development from a career skills session or industry panel presentation, either on campus or online. These programs are offered throughout each spring and fall term either before class or occasionally on a Saturday morning. Topics covered include networking, resume writing, salary negotiation, using LinkedIn and managing your personal brand.

As a student, you’ll have many opportunities to hear from practitioners in the business community while networking with fellow students, staff, faculty and alumni.
