Connecting DU: Business Careers for Non-Business Majors

This event is open to ALL students and alumni.

Every industry, every employer is a business.  However, some non-business majors don’t always see a path for themselves in the ‘business world.’  Hear  from a panel of alumni and employers with non-business majors about their career path and how they applied their education in the business world.  Start building your professional network at a fun and engaging event while learning what it is like to work and gain experience in this industry.

A panel of alumni experts in the field will be prepared to talk about their industries and answer participant questions.  Come for all or any part of the event. Please continue to check back for a list of alumni/employers attending.
