Careers

Our business graduates embark on a wide range of career paths as they pursue their commitments to ethically and socially responsible leadership. Many have found success in the finance, consulting, high tech, and telecom industries. About one-third of our graduates join nonprofit organizations or social enterprises, much higher than the average (6 percent) for business schools. In these varied settings, business graduates serve as chief executive officers; managers of portfolios, finance, marketing, investor relations, and many other critical business areas; analysts; accountants; and entrepreneurs.
