Hiring Undergraduate Students

Thank you for your interest in recruiting undergraduate students from the Gabelli School of Business at Fordham University. Our undergraduates are driven, socially conscious, globally aware individuals who are prepared to contribute in a broad range of ways.

The Personal and Professional Development Center team can provide an inside look at how Gabelli School students and recent alumni can serve your organization.

No matter what level of involvement seems appropriate at this time—whether listing an internship or job, getting to know our students in an informal setting, or something in between—we are committed to meeting your needs and look forward to working with you.

Email us at gsbppd@fordham.edu to get started, or explore the menus below and at left to learn more about your options.

About the Personal and Professional Development Center

The Personal and Professional Development Center—also known as PPD—provides an additional layer of career preparation services for Gabelli School of Business students.

At Fordham, general career preparation is provided by the University-wide Office of Career Services, which also organizes on-campus recruiting, career fairs, and other large-scale events.

PPD builds on top of that strong foundation.

Our services include industry-specific workshops for business majors; individualized student career counseling; and opportunities for companies to engage with undergraduates in unique ways, such as case-oriented sessions where students can show you, rather than tell you, what they can do.

If your company is new to recruiting at Fordham—or you’d like to expand your hiring of Gabelli School students—we encourage you to connect with us. Email Cynthia Bush, director of career advising for undergraduate programs.

The Gabelli School Difference

Why hire a Gabelli School of Business undergraduate student?

As the Jesuit university of New York, Fordham produces business graduates who are different from their peers. They feel strongly that business leadership should be—and can be—ethical and noble. They know how to win without pushing others down. And, through their Fordham education, they come to value “business with purpose,” prioritizing the needs of their employers, their society, and their world.
