Alumni of the Lab are highly sought after as they enter the workforce. These students can hit the ground running as they enter positions at leading medical industry firms. It also helps students with their professional networks-- they not only meet with the inventor but also work with physicians, engineers, and others in the healthcare space as they conduct their research. Students gain a real edge when recruiters know that they have these skills and networks, in addition to having completed complex lab projects. The experience in the lab not only helps students land jobs but gives them smooth transitions once they start their careers. This has led to high placement in the healthcare industry, with that sector consistently being one of the top employment categories for our full-time MBAs at an average of over 20 percent each year.
