Carlson School of Management

Career Choices

Our program gives students a hands-on experience in the investment management field by giving them full responsibility of portfolio management.

The Carlson Funds Enterprise plays a large role in connecting students with professionals in the local finance community. The program enables students to gain more insight into the different financial careers available to them throughout the industry and students that graduate from the CFE program often have a better idea of what they want to do after graduation than most finance students.

'A Day in the Life' SeriesA Day in the Life

As students get closer to graduation, they start thinking about the different career paths they wish to pursue and continue to look for resources to help them through their search. The CFE provides valuable resources to students about the different types of jobs available to them and new to our pool of resources is a series entitled "A Day in the Life." This series gives a quick and honest look at what our analysts would experience on a typical day, should they choose to pursue a particular type of career. View our booklet online.
