"The M.S. in Commerce's curriculum made me a much more well-rounded candidate to employers compared to where I was just out of undergrad. McIntire emphasizes the development of both hard and soft skills, and I have benefitted from improving both."

"Along with many useful resources such as resume, networking, and mock interview tips, Commerce Career Services also offered individual advising calls in the summer prior to starting the program. This helped me get to know CCS resources and discuss my career aspirations. Thus, I was equipped with a fully polished resume and clear about my career goal even before entering the Program."
