Schedule a Corporate Presentation

The Tepper School provides the opportunity for companies to meet with students to present corporate information, available positions, geographic locations and opportunities to enjoy networking.

In our experience, the most successful corporate presentations are those that utilize a team approach. Students are eager to meet and hear from senior members of the management team, but they are also interested in relevant information from recent graduates, particularly alumni.

During the past year, we hosted over 100 corporate recruiting events for students. These forums are the most popular recruiting method for the initial introduction between our students and employers.

All corporate presentations are held in classrooms that are fully A/V equipped.

Types of Corporate Presentations
