Finance

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.

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.

This document will help you to identify and strategize for some of the benefits and challenges of a virtual experience in advance, so you’ll be ready to make the most of your summer experience.
