Career Interest Groups

Career Interest Groups (CIG) exist for current and former students of the Bush School's two Master's degree programs. These groups represent the six primary career areas that our students find employment in and where our former students have work experience. Specific information for each group includes specific KSAs desired; targeted online job listings; and, where applicable, information on professional associations for individuals in that specific field. The Student Services Office maintains a list of former students who have specific experience in each group and both current and former students are encouraged to utilize these groups when seeking internship or employment opportunities.
