Career Advantage Series



Katie Cooney, Executive Director, Deborah's Palm
“SEBA Graduate Career Services assisted me in aligning my vision, education and sense of service to others as I began my career search. We moved from understanding my values to resume building to practice interviewing.”


Business schools boost career services as students shop for best ROI

As more students invest in graduate business programs, either right after college or later in their careers, they want to see tangible results for their efforts. And with tuition costs climbing, return on investment, or ROI, has become even more important as prospective students choose an MBA or specialized master’s program.

Saint Mary’s College, in Moraga, California, reports that most of its graduate business students experience a 10 to 40 percent salary increase in the first year after graduation.
