For Recruiters

Information to help recruiters connect with students in the Master's in Business Analytics (M-BAN) Program offered by the Penn State Smeal College of Business.

Our Career Services Office offers a user-friendly, efficient recruiting process. We assist with online job postings, networking opportunities, and on-campus interviewing along with a tailored customer service focus. Contact Matthew Smith, assistant director of Recruitment and Employer Relations to discuss your needs.

Designed for recently graduated baccalaureate students, from business and non-business backgrounds, Smeal's STEM-designated Business Analytics program equips students with the skills needed to solve today's real-world corporate problems. Students will master Business Analytics concepts, approaches, tools, critical thinking, and decision-making skills for application as a professional in a range of industries and careers. 

Flexible Recruiting Options

Online Access

Log into Nittany Lion Careers, our online recruitment management system, for web-based access to post jobs, view resumes, e-mail candidates, schedule interviews, and coordinate information sessions.

Career Fairs & Events

Career events are fantastic opportunities for students and potential employers to connect. To learn more about available career fairs, please visit Smeal's career fair site

On-Campus Recruiting

Whether you pre-select candidates, set up an open schedule, or use some combination of both, we will be happy to make arrangements to meet your needs. We can help with scheduling interview rooms and information sessions.

Interviews at Your Site

You may have interest in only one or two individuals, which may not justify an on-campus recruiting trip. With service by four major airlines and located within a four-hour drive of New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, D.C., and Pittsburgh, we can often coordinate interviews that take place at your site.

Telephone, Teleconference, Videoconference Interviews

If you prefer to connect with candidates over the phone, let us know. We can help make the connections.

Become a Corporate Sponsor

Some of the best ways to get to know students and have them get to know your company includes:

  • Involvement with student associations
  • Participating in on-campus events
  • Hosting student visits to your company site
  • Executive visits to speak with students
