About Us

98% of last year’s graduates landed jobs at 155 companies in 30 states at an average starting salary $63,504. That’s higher than Harvard – at a fourth the cost.

There’s a reason our students are in high demand. Through our expansive internship program and one-on-one interview prep and resume review to our signature professional development program, Mines Advantage, and year-round workshops and events, we won’t just help you hit the ground running. We’ll give you a competitive edge.

Whether you are a student, alumnus, or employer, we want to connect you to the people and places you need to succeed. Email us to make an appointment today.
