First-Years: Meet Your Second-Year Coaches

As you begin the Tippie MBA program, there is no doubt that your mind is full of questions, both career-related and not. When should I sign up for career fairs? How do I kick off my elevator pitch? Which Academy should I join? Where is the best place to get Indian food?

These are just some of the questions a first-year MBA may ask his/her second-year coach. After a successful launch of the peer career coaching program in 2011, we are excited to introduce the 2013-2014 group of second-year coaches. These individuals are driven by their own successes, but are also motivated by helping first-year students navigate the MBA job search and life as a Tippie MBA.
