Considering a career in medicine, health care, law, finance or business? A Connecticut College education gives you the foundation to pursue a professional career in any field, including those typically thought to benefit from specialized undergraduate coursework.

In fact, our well-rounded liberal arts education offers better preparation because you’ll leave Conn as a lifelong learner—curious and courageous in your thinking—and a conscientious global citizen, compassionate and caring in your work with others.

Business and Finance

There is a wide range of career possibilities in the fields of business and finance, so most college graduates learn the day-to-day specifics of their jobs only when they get to work. However, those who achieve the greatest success start their jobs having already mastered the core skills of critical-thinking, communication and leadership, the three cornerstones of Conn’s liberal arts education.
