After Graduation

Business Administration majors are typically very busy during their senior year as the reality of graduation looms ahead. Students work closely with faculty and the Career Development Center in the counseling and interviewing process.

Business Administration majors understand early on the value of establishing contacts and aggressively selling one's attributes. A majority of them work at summer internships before their senior year. Faculty write numerous letters of reference and make phone calls to ensure that students explore all the possible options for career paths. The well-placed network of Washington and Lee alumni is used extensively in opening doors for students. The personal attention pays off, as our students have been quite successful in securing significant entry-level positions across the spectrum of opportunities.

Business Administration majors can look forward to careers in investment banking, marketing, consulting, finance, retailing, and manufacturing. After several years experience, a number of alumni enter MBA programs at the finest schools in the country.
