Consulting / Business

Welcome to the Consulting and Business interest community!

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.
