Despite the unforeseen challenges the pandemic has brought to the world and to the University, the College of Business Administration continues to maintain its strength in getting its students to the next step of their career.
For the 2020 graduates, 91% of Pitt Business students were placed in the destination they chose, including a $60,000 average starting salary for those beginning their careers.
Last year, Poets&Quants named Pitt Business No. 1 in “Getting Grads the Jobs They Want,” and U.S. News & World Report ranked Pitt Business No. 25 among public programs and No. 38 among all programs in the 2021 Best Undergraduate Business Programs Rankings.
Due to the pandemic, the Pitt Business Fall Career Conference was held virtually for the first time ever. The conference had over 900 business students and over 70 companies and recruiters in attendance for the two-day event.
“Our Career Team has done a wonderful job making this semester’s events go on flawlessly,” said Christopher Meaner, Director of Career Development, Pitt Business. “And despite the circumstances, our students have continually made us Pitt Proud.”
In addition, the Pitt Business Career Development team has recently implemented several new initiatives, including summer micro-internships, recruiter networking through Microsoft Teams, and virtual industry panel sessions.
“Pitt Business is so great because it gives opportunities for students to succeed in searching for jobs and internships,” said Leah Belman, Class of 2023. “I constantly feel supported by my advisors, peers, professors, and other staff to do well in my classes and find a job that fits for me.”
