Our Alumni

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.

And, once entering the workforce, our graduates have become chief executive officers (CEOs), chief operating officers (COOs), presidents, chief financial officers (CFOs) and senior vice presidents at numerous Fortune 1000 and Forbes 1000 firms.
