Beyond the Classroom Experiences
Career/Internship OpportunitiesM&T students are some of the most highly sought after candidates in the job market. Their unique skill set is known and appreciated among industry leaders. M&T students and alumni can be found everywhere from Wall Street to Microsoft to technical consulting firms around the globe to the United States Space Program. Entrepreneurship and innovation are primary interests of many M&Ts. Countless M&T alumni have developed their own companies and participated in start-up enterprises. A few examples of M&T graduate start-ups include: Stubhub, Traffic.com, Register.com, and AQR Capital Management.
Alumni Networking and InvolvementThe M&T Program boasts over 1,800 alumni, many of whom remain actively engaged and dedicated to the Program. Through several channels, M&T students interact and network with this distinguished group, who are at the top of their fields in high tech companies and entrepreneurial ventures, venture capital, investment banking, medicine, academia, and many other fields. Our alumni serve as career mentors and they play a major role in helping students secure internship and employment opportunities. Periodic Alumni Lunches, mentoring events, and an annual Career Dinner are a few of the events that encourage these interactions.
In addition, the M&T Program hosts M&T Connect, an online portal that is exclusive to students and alumni and serves to link the two groups. This portal is dedicated to helping M&T students and alumni stay connected and share in their pursuit of business and technology opportunities, research, and other activities.
Working and Learning From Other M&T StudentsTime and time again, M&T students comment on the lasting relationships they have developed through the Program. Students have a number of opportunities to connect and interact. The M&T Club board, comprised of motivated M&T students, organizes a number of social, academic, and professional events throughout the year. M&T students mentor and tutor one another, creating a small, supportive community in the midst of the larger Penn community.
