Students who graduate from Concordia University, Nebraska have a distinct advantage when pursuing their career choices. By grounding our curriculum in the Lutheran tradition, Concordia can offer you an education grounded in rigorous academic excellence, but also rich in faith and life experiences, making our graduates uniquely suited to pursue a higher purpose in all their vocations in life, including their career.

As a graduate of Concordia, you will gain the skills to think critically, write with conviction, ask questions, recognize problems and work with your peers to develop solutions, all while serving others to make the world a better place.


In the Lutheran Christian tradition, “vocation” means more than just your profession, though that’s one aspect of how we are called. We all have many vocations that we will fulfill in our lifetime, perhaps as a mother or father, a Christian, or as a citizen of a certain nation.

We don’t choose our vocations; God chooses them for us and us for them. He uses the abilities and passions that He has given us to spark a fire in our hearts. Concordia can help you discover those passions and explore how to turn your passions into a life that you love.


Whether you are planning to go to graduate school or straight into the workforce, Concordia can help you pursue the career you care about. With our excellent academic programs, internship opportunities and high graduation and placement rates, you’ll get the support you need to make sure you’re ready to be part of the workforce in whatever career you’re called to.
