I went to two open houses at Rockefeller before enrolling, and the students overwhelmingly confirmed what I'd heard about it. I was drawn to the program's flexibility, and the fact that in such a tightly knit community, I'll have an opportunity to learn so much more than just my own field."
A scientific education at Rockefeller can be the first step in a stellar career in academic research, or it can serve as the basis for work in other areas. While the majority of Rockefeller's graduates go on to careers in research or teaching, others are drawn to the pharmaceutical and technology industries, businesses or nonprofit organizations.
The university works to expose its students to the career opportunities available to them after graduation and to help them transition to postdoctoral fellowships or other positions.
