This review is for Purdue Krannert
Program Full Time MBA
Class of 2020
As a career switcher from STEM to business, Purdue helped me use my analytical skills as a foundation for my the business acumen I gained, rather than simply another tool in my tool box. The Krannert Professional Development Center also greatly helped me use my background to pivot my career and not be anchored to my old area of expertise. Additionally, the smaller class sizes, but massive alumni network, aided me in finding informational interviews, and advocates within companies I am interested in. Although Krannert is not necessarily a household name, Purdue is known around the world as a top tier university.
The extracurricular resources for every functional area are expanding rapidly.
Many strong tech/manufacturing/science firms come to recruit at Purdue due to its prowess in Engineering and large student body. A large number of them come looking for MBA students as well, but many students successfully land internships or full time positions by piggybacking off the engineering recruiting opportunities.
