What is the Business and Finance Program? Is it right for you?
Have you ever wondered what it means to have a career in finance, consulting, or general business? Have you ever wondered what it takes to start your own company, be an entrepreneur, or work at a start-up? Whether you are a first-year student, sophomore, or junior now exploring new opportunities, this is a great way to learn, discover, and decide if finance, consulting, business, or entrepreneurship is right for you.
The Loeb Center offers industry-specific initiatives to help students explore and plan for careers in various fields. The Business and Finance Program was established in 2015 to help students explore and prepare for careers in the financial services industry, consulting, or general business. We also offer programming in support of those considering starting their own companies, investing in/working at start-ups, or just gaining an innovative mindset.
The information session will be led by Stephanie Hockman, the Program Director, and include insights from Rob Parker ’21 (Finance intern) and Emily Kiernan ’21 (Consulting intern). During the session, you’ll hear a quick overview of finance and consulting, the programs offered to explore and prepare for careers in finance, business, and consulting, including workshops, experiential learning opportunities, and how best to take advantage of student interns and advising appointments included in the Business and Finance Program.
Attendees will also get a sense for the timing for this field's recruiting process. Since recruiting for internships and full-time positions starts early in business and finance, it is NEVER TOO SOON to start the exploration process. Don’t miss out this opportunity to hear more about the program -- and how the Loeb Center can help you explore and prepare for careers in finance, consulting, general business, and entrepreneurship.
You'll find multiple opportunities to hear about the Business and Finance Program listed on Handshake. You only need to register for and attend one.

It's been a long week. Pull up an Adirondack chair (or bring a blanket!) and join us on the quad as we relax, practice a bit of guided meditation, and listen to the acoustic sounds of first year Ry Bleckel and religious and spiritual life (RSL) director Harrison Blum as they pluck guitar strings under the falling leaves. Together, we'll begin to shed the week, and welcome the weekend. Find us by listening for guitars or looking for RSL lawn signs.
