Consulting / Business

Welcome to the Consulting and Business interest community!

Members of this community are interested in careers that involve working with people, solving complex problems and innovating.  Often these careers include fast-paced environments, opportunities for upward mobility and expectations of staff to exceed goals and perform at a high level.  Though a business degree (like from the excellent UW Foster School of Business) is quite useful, there are many ways to enter the business-world (even if you aren’t a business major).  People who pursue careers in Consulting and Business develop strong analytical, interpersonal and communication skills.

Examples of career pathways include (but are not limited to): management, finance, operations, supply chain, human resources, business information technology, marketing, events, accounting, international business, investment banking and consulting.  Consulting usually has a focus on specific business areas such as management, strategy, technology or marketing consulting.
