Businessperson with STEM Degree

Some people who study science in college use it to build careers in other fields. Businessperson Brian Coe, for instance, studied neuroscience and psychology at Brandeis University. His family expected him to become a doctor like his father, so he also took “premed” courses. But Brian found himself more drawn to business than to medicine. He took jobs in sales and started several of his own business enterprises. Eventually, he founded and rose in the ranks of several healthcare companies, helping develop medical tests that would make doctors’ work easier and get their patients the care they need.
