Careers & Recruiting

Overview of the career and recruiting services provided by the Masters of Management and Organizational Leadership (MOL) Program offered by the Penn State Smeal College of Business.

The Master of Professional Studies in Management and Organizational Leadership Program from the Penn State Smeal College of Business is part of an emerging trend of career-acceleration degrees that are increasing in demand among prospective employers. Top organizations are looking to hire graduates from science, technology, engineering, and mathematical backgrounds who have a solid foundation in business.

Rapid Return on Investment

According to a recent survey conducted by the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), graduates of full-time, one-year master of management programs like the Penn State Smeal MOL report a rapid one-year return on educational investment. While not guaranteed, the salary increase you are likely to experience in just the first year of your career will pay for the costs of pursuing your master’s degree.
