Recent Graduate Employment

Milano students and alumni serve around the world in the public, nonprofit, and private sectors, in local, national, and international organizations, in banking and public and private financial services. They serve emerging markets and under-served constituencies. Finding fulfilling careers in all three sectors,  many begin working in one sector and move to another or work in organizations that build strategic alliances and partnerships across sectors. Milano degrees prepare graduates to succeed in many professions, rather than being limited to narrow expertise. At graduation, every student has a professional portfolio and highly developed analytical and managerial skills in his or her field of study.
