Financial Services, Consulting and Business

The Financial Services, Consulting, and Business Career Community focuses on the multitude of areas within finance, consulting, and businesses and will expose students to functional roles and career paths at small, medium, and large companies, across a variety of industries. Each of these areas takes a specialized mindset and unique skill set that you are developing at Denison.  Some common themes that run through each area include the desire to work in a fast-paced environment, the ability to think creatively to solve problems quickly and to communicate effectively with clients both internally and externally. Often these careers include opportunities for upward mobility and expectations of employees to exceed goals and perform at a high level.
