Engage with UAlberta MBA Students

Engage with Us.

We offer a number of opportunities for you to connect with current MBA students, share your expertise, and build your company brand. Please contact us to find out more about engaging with MBA students.

Coach, Judge or Sponsor a Case Competition or Team
Every year, many of our MBA students participate in Case Competitions around the world. Selection for case competitions starts with the Internal case competition held in the Fall and after, teams are formed and assigned to the various competitions.

Preparation for case competition begins and students work diligently with the guidance of one or more coaches through the cases to prepare them for the competition. The Internal Case Competition requires judges and coaches and sponsorship is always an option.
Host an Industry Snapshot
Provide students the opportunity to experience your corporate culture and your brand while learning about your organization. Hosting an industry snapshot is a unique opportunity to promote your organization to the up and coming talent. Participants learn about specific careers and industries and build relationships with leaders and recruiters. In addition to trips around Edmonton, we organize trips to Calgary, Toronto and Vancouver.
Mentor an MBA Student
The Career Management Centre's mentorship program is a boutique approach to mentorship. Interested students complete an application process and when accepted by the program, customized mentorship connections are made. Mentors and mentees meet for at least five sessions to discuss topics that are on top of the mind of the student and range from problem-solving around business topics to creating success for themselves in the MBA program.
Participate in our Business Career Fair

Every January, the School of Business hosts organizations for a career fair where recruiters and staff have the opportunity to meet students, learn about their skill sets and academics and source talent for the year.

There is a limited number of exhibitor spots available and which tend to sell out in the fall. If you are interested in exhibiting please contact James LaFleur jlafleur@ualberta.ca to learn more.

Partner with Student Clubs
Outside of the classroom, MBA students are also very active in student clubs focused on their specific career interests. Partnering with a club would allow you to connect directly with a targeted group of MBA students. Current clubs include Net Impact (Social and Environmental Sustainability), the MBA Women's Network, and the MBA games.
Speak in Class
Speakers add incredible value to student's growth whether they share their own experience, new and leading-edge concepts, or insight into their organizations or industry. There are a number of events throughout the year where we invite professional individuals to speak to our students. These can include career specific events organized through the Career Management Centre or a more formal event such as our MBA Dean's Forums with senior executives speaking directly to students.
Volunteer for Orientation or other events
There is great excitement in September when we launch a new group of MBA students into their academic year during the orientation. Full-time student orientation is fondly remembered and we could not provide such a great service if it were not for our alumni volunteers. Volunteers can help with some of the career exercises, participate in panel discussions, or welcome international students to the start of term. Share your experience and enthusiasm by signing up to be a volunteer for orientation.
