Students who have a strong passion for technology should seek professional opportunities beyond the traditional on-campus recruiting avenues provided by the school. To this end, each year, the Business & Technology Club partners with the Tepper School Career Opportunities Center and the Office of Alumni Relations to organize professional business networking treks to geographic locations that have a high concentration of technology-related employers.
These treks provide students with the opportunity to gain a broader exposure to technology-related career information. Students participate in treks to learn about the companies, meet with local alumni to understand their career paths, and converse with corporate recruiters to understand the various tech-related job opportunities for MBAs. These treks are organized, funded, and run by students on their own time.
