MBA Veterans Conference

As a founding member, Notre Dame consistently sends MBA Veterans to this national conference, which provides veterans enrolled in a top MBA program a chance to network early.  The Veterans Conference also has activities such as on-site interviews, and even the chance to land an internship or full time offer early in the recruiting cycle.

Professional Development

We believe that every veteran can provide tremendous value to any firm or organization.  The Vets Club mentors first year students and provides the necessary guidance to secure a role in an industry they want.  We also host firms such as Procter & Gamble to come to campus and speak directly to veterans.
