Business, Consulting & Finance
Hiatt engages a full ecosystem on and off-campus to support students interested in the business, consulting and finance fields in collaboration with faculty in the International Business School, the Department of Economics, student clubs like TAMID and the Brandeis Investment Club, Brandeis alumni like the Finance Action Committee, as well as employers, recruiters and community partners.
"I began partnering with Hiatt as the UAH for the business major. We've co-hosted marketing career nights, established Brandeis as a National Millennial Group founding university, developed corporate relationships for internships and jobs and helped employers find talented Brandeis students for exciting opportunities. Hiatt has been a terrific partner for the business program and our students."
—Grace E. Zimmerman, Professor of the Practice of Marketing, Brandeis International Business School
Industry-Focused Engagement and Events
Hiatt regularly brings together experts, employers and alumni to meet and speak with students in classes, online and in-person for exploration, preparation and networking.
BCF Employer Engagement at Brandeis
Employers use a variety of programs to meet with students and identify and cultivate talent. They regularly schedule information sessions, online workshops, case competitions and site visits as options to engage with Brandeis students and alumni.
At Hiatt, we emphasize that although campus recruiting is a part of an employer’s engagement process, it should not be the primary focus when it comes to attending and participating in employer-led activities. Students should approach each event as an opportunity to engage, learn and connect with professionals in their desired fields.

Career Outcomes for Business, Consulting and Finance
The Hiatt Career Center's annual Beyond Brandeis survey provides insight into the employment and continuing education status of Brandeis University undergraduates within six months of graduation.
Ninety-five percent of the class of 2019 working in the banking, consulting and finance industries completed at least one internship before graduation. Students can utilize Handshake to explore where students, including students at other colleges and universities, completed their internships.
Brandeis graduates in these areas frequently go on to work for top-tier employers, such as Deloitte, JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs and more.
Working With Hiatt
Hiatt helps Brandeisians know who they are, what they want and how to get there.
College is a time to discover yourself. You get to figure out what you enjoy, where your interests lie and goals for the future. As you find yourself weighing ideas and choices, we can help you to align them with your major or career. As the semesters change, you'll find new experiences waiting for you to take advantage of. They could be in the form of studying abroad, an internship or joining a campus club. When you know what you want, it's time to put it all together! Hiatt will support your professional goals, but we can't do all the work for you.
Your approach should be to stay curious and engaged. There's no one-size-fits-all path or plan to follow. You're unique and staying open to all possibilities while channeling your curiosity and engaging in activities will fuel your success.
"Get experience early, even if you are not sure a particular job/internship is what you want to do. Spend time thinking about how certain skills/experiences from different parts of your academic and professional experiences prepared you for a position you are interested in." — Dan '18, strategy analyst, AccentureSee more career advice from Brandeis students
