Pre-professional advising

So many Gabelli students choose to pursue careers in accounting, finance and marketing that we have developed specialized pre-professional advising programs in these three fields — and hired industry experts to run them.

Our pre-professional advisors know what top firms in their fields are looking for in an applicant. They have active workplace connections from their prior careers in the industry, and they can use those connections on behalf of Gabelli students.

Each advisor also offers services to help students gain traction in that particular business discipline:
