Executive Career Workshops


Workshop your next career move with peers and mentors committed to sharing success.

A key component of Anderson’s EMBA program is a tailored approach to career planning and management. Executive level career management workshops cover strategies and techniques for marketing yourself, networking, interviewing, negotiating, researching and targeting companies, and how to work with executive recruiters.

Early in the first fall quarter, EMBA students begin a year-long series of career workshops which focus on the key principles of marketing as applied to the job search process and enable students to produce a written career marketing plan.
