If you are studying finance, or any business discipline, you are likely interested in focusing on building a successful career after you complete your studies. Success is defined in many ways. But making sure that you align your career opportunities with those things you are passionate about is important regardless of how you define it.

If you are passionate about pharma stocks, you will lead a more rewarding work life and ultimately be more successful as an analyst covering Pfizer than working in corporate finance.

It may seem obvious, and our next generation students seem better aware of life-fulfillment issues. But I can’t tell you how many people I talk to that are doing something they don’t love – or worse. And it prevents them from reaching their potential.
