Be an asset to any industry

Businesses, governments, individuals—they all have financial questions.

How do I raise capital for my new business? What should we expect tax revenues to be next year? What’s the best way to plan for retirement or my child’s college education? These questions show why there are so many career opportunities in finance.

Pivot from unconnected to investment banking insider

Through the Hawkinson Institute, Michael Korobov, BBA Finance, set up informational interviews with alumni based at Houlihan Lokey, a global investment bank. The networking paid off. He landed an internship with Houlihan Lokey as an investment banking analyst.

And after graduating, he got a full-time offer to join the food and beverage group in Chicago as an analyst.

“My day-to-day changes pretty rapidly,” Michael says. “I help with whatever needs to be done at whatever stage of the process we're in.”
