Feedback from Recruiters

A Focus on Ethics

“Notre Dame’s global reach—both in attracting students as well as in providing international study programs—generates candidates with broad perspectives. The Notre Dame experience—a strong academic program, a focus on ethics, and an understanding of the importance to contributing to the community—provides us with candidates that understand how to achieve balance in both their professional and personal lives.”

Unity and Support for Each Other

“One of the characteristics that I think differentiates Notre Dame MBA candidates from students at other MBA schools is their unity and support of each other. I have interviewed candidates who were also highly recommending some of the other candidates we were interviewing—people who in reality were their competition! This has been both humbling and inspiring. It is a clear sign of their commitment to their classmates which translates into the commitment they have toward their teams and people at P&G. It is a great characteristic!”

Stellar Problem Solving and Leadership Skills

“Notre Dame MBA candidates receive a remarkably well-rounded education. By the time they’ve earned their degree, they’ve learned not only stellar problem-solving and leadership skills, they have a great sense of personal integrity and responsibility. These values are indispensable in today’s workplace. The Mendoza College of Business is developing professional, inspired and motivated leaders.”

Further, the typical ND candidates exhibit a level of commitment that clearly differentiates them from the candidates of other leading schools.”
