Where innovation leads the future of business
Our grads work in industries from manufacturing to banking. They've served as chief information officer for global chemical maker BASF and as vice presidents for Hershey's and BB&T bank. Like you, upon graduation they wanted a job or entry into grad school. Gaining skills that all businesses need—skills in accounting, marketing, IT, and management — is a great strategy to land a job in any field. You can acquire this skill set at AU's College of Business.
Your concentration may be financial economics, but if you work at a firm such as Merrill Lynch, you'll still need to know how the marketing department works.
