  • Our Alumni Succeed

    Most M.B.A. programs require two (2) to four (4) years of work experience prior to admission.  For that reason, the overwhelming majority of business majors seek employment immediately following graduation. Some eventually pursue advanced degrees, especially the M.B.A.   And, our economics and politics majors have nearly a 100 % acceptance rate into graduate programs and law schools.  In fact, McKenna School graduates are presently attending / have attended some of the best law, doctorate (Ph.D.), and masters programs in the country:
