One of Lawrence University's most popular and multi-faceted career communities. Explore the wide world of Business and the exciting world of Entrepreneurship in this career community.

Business is a broad term encompassing careers in consulting, finance, banking, real estate, business operations, management, marketing, human resources, and insurance. Entrepreneurship also encompasses a wide range of careers, but generally refers to identifying a need and starting a business or enterprise to fill that void. Roles in a “start-up” environment can span many industries and job functions.  A common factor in entrepreneurial careers is fast-paced, ambiguous environments where you move rapidly from idea to action. 

Meet with Grace Kutney, the dedicated advisor for the business and entrepreneurship community.
