At Oberlin we are committed to preparing our students for meaningful professional lives in an uncertain and ever-changing world of work. The offices of Oberlin Entrepreneurship, Career Development, and Con Professional Development, host networking events and advising sessions to help students translate their entrepreneurial experiences and long-term professional goals into an action plan for postgraduate success.

In the 21st Century, every Conservatory student is their own start-up.
