What Careers Can I Pursue with my Major?

One of the most common questions the career services staff receives is “what careers can I pursue with my major?” The simple answer is: just about any. As a Bentley University student, you are gaining a solid foundation in business and strategic thinking. Employers are thrilled to hire Bentley students because of your critical thinking, communication, teamwork, leadership, and analytical skills. That being said, there are some types of jobs (or “functional roles”) that are more common given your major.

There are two large events coming up to help you better understand the kinds of careers that graduates with your major and career interests go into: Career Connections on February 16th will be for careers related to MK/MG/IDCC/Sales/MC/CR, and Career Conversations on February 17th will be for careers related to AC/FI/EC. Regardless of whether you are a freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior, I would highly recommend attending at least one of these events.

Please RSVP in advance by going to BentleyLink>Events>Workshops> and then either “UCS: Career Connections” or “UCS: Career Conversations” depending on the one(s) you are planning to attend.
