Setting Career Goals

Wouldn’t it be great if someone could just tell you what to major in or what career to pursue? Selecting a major or career is not easy for most college students. Common questions students ask are:
- Is business right for me?
- What should I major in?
- Which careers go with my major?
- What are the best career options for me?
- How can I best prepare for the career I’m considering?
The Wisconsin BBA Career Advising Team, 3290 Grainger Hall, has several resources to help you evaluate what’s important to you, learn about business careers and industries and put all the pieces together. It’s not an easy process and we won’t be able to just tell you what you should do, but we are eager to help you through the exciting, yet sometimes overwhelming process.
Did you know Wisconsin BBA Career Advisors can do more than look over your resume or help prepare you for your next interview? Your career advisor can help you explore career options with a business major, provide direction on where to start, and offer information and resources about career within several business, government and non-profit industries.
What Can I Do with this Major?
You’ve decided you might be interested in a business major, but you are not sure what you can actually do with a finance major, a marketing major, an information systems major and so on. To get you started we provide information about common careers graduates pursue with each business major. Check it out by clicking on the "career" tab of your major of interest.
Remember, the careers we’ve highlighted are representative of typical career paths associated with each major but it is impossible to provide a comprehensive list. Schedule an appointment with a Wisconsin BBA career adviser if you are curious about alternative career paths with your potential major.
