Consulting is a career pathway focused on helping clients and organizations solve problems.  Examples of consulting careers include, but are not limited to, management/strategy, economic  and healthcare consulting.

Finance includes careers that are broadly focused on helping individuals and organizations to manage, raise, and leverage capital.  Examples include commercial banking, investment banking, asset management, and wealth management.
