The Consulting, Finance, Business, & Entrepreneurship Career Community represents diverse career options across many types of organizations. It also carries forward a strong tradition of alumnae who have been very successful in these industries.

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.

Business is very broad term, and includes both consulting and finance. It also includes careers in real estate, hospitality and service management, food and beverage, retail, transportation, energy and many other sectors.

Entrepreneurship is also a very broad term, but generally refers to transforming a conceptual idea to an actual new company or organization. Roles in a “start-up” environment can span many industries and job functions. But, the common factors in these careers are a high-paced, ambiguous environments where you have to quickly move from idea to taking action.

Please dig into the resources below to learn more, and reach out to make an appointment once you have had a chance to explore these resources. I look forward to engaging you in this career community!
