MBA Recruiting Policies

Grade Disclosure

Mendoza students are not required to disclose their grades, GPA and/or GMAT information to prospective employers. However, it is the individual right of the student to disclose any aspect of their own academic performance to prospective employers or any other interested parties.

Scheduling Interviews

Companies are strongly encouraged to schedule both on- and off-campus interviews at times that do not conflict with a student’s academic schedule.

Extending Offers

Companies should communicate decisions to candidates in accordance with Mendoza’s key recruiting dates (highlighted below). Exploding offers do not give candidates an appropriate amount of time to make a decision and are therefore prohibited. 

Withdrawing Offers

Once an offer (verbal or written) is made to a candidate, it cannot be withdrawn without being considered a violation of Mendoza’s Recruiting Policies. Any company considering rescinding an offer to a student should contact John Rooney jrooney@nd.edu as soon as possible.

Reneging on Accepted Offers

Once a student has accepted an offer of employment, he or she is expected to honor that commitment. Reneging on an accepted offer is a violation of Mendoza’s recruiting policies. Each renege situation will be reviewed and, depending on the circumstances, the following penalties may be imposed:

  • Mandatory in-person meeting with the Director of Career Services
  • Student writes a letter of apology explaining reasons for his or her actions
  • Immediate loss of access to DOME/on-campus interviewing opportunities

End-of-Year Hiring Results

Companies are asked to provide Graduate Business Career Services with information on offers made, offers accepted and salaries offered. This helps strengthen the relationship between Graduate Business Career Services and your company and facilitates our preparation of an accurate employment report at the end of each recruiting year.

Ethical/Legal Guidelines

Ethical and legal guidelines are expected to be followed during all phases of the recruiting process. Candidates should not be discriminated against on the basis of ethnicity, gender, marital status, age, creed, sexual orientation, disability or any other non-job-related factor.

Employment Outcome Reporting

Graduate Business Career Services follows the standards for reporting employment statistics recommended by the MBA Career Services and Employer Alliance (MBACSEA).
