Peabody’s non-traditional programs have been a ‘best kept secret’ and that’s about to change.”

PC2 provides students and alumni with career services and networking opportunities as well as information, special programs and personal career coaching. Peabody graduates are employed by a wide variety of organizations, including government agencies, management consulting firms, non-profits and Fortune 500 companies.
