Finance is a really diverse field, and that when people hear finance they may think of Wall Street—you know, The Wolf of Wall Street—and this cutthroat image. In reality, there are many different fields in finance.If you are really interested in that, you can go far in that direction. If you are not, there’s plenty of other opportunities for you. I think a lot of people believe that it’s impossible to have that work-life balance in fields such as finance, but that’s not the case.
As I mentioned, there are so many different career paths you can take. A lot of our students, for instance, go work for non-financial firms, such as Eli Lilly. All kinds of companies need financial professionals.
