You’ll do more than just learn about areas like accounting, finance, economics, marketing, and information systems. You’ll develop key skills for the workplace. You’ll discover how to synthesize information, analyze situations, and react thoughtfully and critically.

Plan your Career Path

To help you plan your career track, you’ll take a 1-credit course called Effective Career Planning. The two-day course brings together full- and part-time graduate students from all campuses.

You’ll complete an online self-assessment tool to measure your business competencies, networking savvy, emotional intelligence, and influential power. You’ll also have workshops with corporate coaches to learn more about career strategies, effective business writing, and corporate presentations.

In the end, you’ll develop a clear career development plan to ensure that your Suffolk MBA sets you on the right path.

Achieve your Career Goals

You also have access to our EDGE Professional Development workshops, which are open to all Sawyer Business School graduate students. Led by executive coaches and corporate consultants, the workshops help you build your resume, expand your network, negotiate salaries, gain expertise in databases like Bloomberg, and more.

“As someone who earned my undergraduate degree while working full-time, I was expecting my MBA experience to be similar—no contacts outside the classroom, no sense of being part of the school, etc.  I was extremely pleased with the EDGE program and the many opportunities it provided to network with alumni, faculty, and other MBAs who are working professionals,” says Adam W. Taylor (MBA/JD ’07), Director, Innovation Portfolio at AT&T.
