Campus Presence

Corporate recognition and knowledge of your firm by Xavier undergraduate and MBA students is priceless. It is a mutually beneficial relationship, as students become aware of career options and employment opportunities, and you are provided an opportunity to get involved, give back and make a difference in the lives of others.

As students progress towards the completion of their studies, your corporate presence assures that students who are passionate about your firm and its business, and who possess your desired corporate skills, will pursue connections and/or employment with your company.
