Watch Out, MBAs! PhDs Are After Your Jobs
    May 1, 2014

    Graduate schools are increasing their efforts to support non-academic career pathways for their PhD students, with some even hosting MBA-style recruitment fairs on campus. CGS President Debra W. Stewart discusses the need for better data on PhD career outcomes, and how a CGS project is laying the groundwork to get there.
