New full-time MBA candidates at the C. T. Bauer College of Business had the opportunity to spend one-on-one time with 11 successful Bauer MBA alumni at an Alumni Roundtable event held during orientation in August.

Each roundtable session gave candidates the chance to get to know their peers and visiting alumni. After introductions, candidates attended a breakout session with an alumnus in their respective concentrations.

Speakers included:

The Bauer MBA alumni shared their personal experiences, giving career advice and guidance to incoming students on how to make the most of the program and gain connections to help them navigate the journey.

“If you can get real experience from real companies, definitely take that opportunity. Don’t make [your course selection] so robotic that you don’t have fun,” BakerCorp Vice President-General Manager Eric John said.

The alumni also encouraged MBA students to spend time outside of class networking and planning for their future after Bauer.

“Start depositing in your entrepreneurial bank,” Sceptre Hospitality Resources CEO Rodrigo Jimenez said. “Network and build the financial ability to walk away and do what you want to do.”
