As a business major or business graduate, the consulting industry is one of the first places you look for a job or internship. Why? The consulting industry is a truly exciting and challenging field to work in. You might work with one client or industry for only several weeks before switching to an entirely new industry, which means you are always on your toes and learning. Or, you may want to stay in one industry for many years and become an expert in that area. Each industry and client has its own set of difficulties and problems to solve.
In today’s information world, the web is king.

Probably the biggest challenge that web developers face is staying on top of the latest trends.
The media industry is an umbrella term for numerous industries such as animation, film, music, cell phones, web, TV and publishing. What do all of these industries have in common?

For example, you may need to design a bus advertisement for a bus that runs through middle-income neighborhoods.

And do it all on schedule and under budget. Piece of cake!
Logistics requires a complex flow of numerous inputs working together to efficiently transport goods around the world at the lowest expense possible.
