Academics at Michigan


Beyond Undergraduate

Jobs, internships, graduate school, professional school . . . for a University of Michigan undergraduate, the possibilities are endless. A Michigan degree opens many doors, and for undergraduates, the array of options may be overwhelming.

Trained advisors can help students navigate the decision-making process. The Career Center is the main source for students seeking career guidance and information. It provides career counseling and advising, career information, pre-professional services, graduate school information, job and internship information, and educational programs, workshops, and classes, and it is open to students in all U-M Schools and Colleges.

In addition to the Career Center, some Schools and Colleges provide career offices or services specific to students in those areas of Study.

Students in these Schools/Colleges should use both the Career Center and their School/College career office for maximum effectiveness in their career decision-making process. Students in all Schools/Colleges may also want to consult with academic advisors and faculty as they consider their career options.

Of course, one of the biggest advantages to a Michigan degree is the alumni network that it brings. With over 400,000 living alumni, Michigan grads will have no trouble finding connections in their intended field. The Alumni Association offers many programs designed to connect undergraduates to the powerful Michigan alumni network, including face-to-face and virtual meetings with business leaders, entrepreneurs, experts and professionals in a wide array of career fields.
