UPDATE: SUSPENDED FOR FALL 2020 ACROSS THE PEER SCHOOL NETWORK Haas also participates in a global reciprocity program with a select number of our peer business schools. If you are traveling to one of your target locations, you can arrange to visit the career management office of participating schools and access their local job listings. We have agreements in place with schools such as UCLA, NYU Stern, Chicago Booth, Columbia, Wharton, UT Austin, and Harvard, amongst others. Reciprocity is only available for in-person visits, and is dependent on the schedule of the participating school; there are periods of the year (during campus interview season for example) when the school is on blackout for reciprocity visits. If you would like to take advantage of this program, please email us and include the school of interest along with your desired date of visit, and CMG will make arrangements on your behalf.
