Scholarships & Program Benefits

CarlaThe Business Fellows program blends classroom learning and real-world experience to prepare you for the world of business, nonprofits or government. You and your classmates will learn how to work as a highly effective team, completing coursework and collaborating on consulting projects and other assignments.

If you plan to major in entrepreneurship, finance, management, marketing, international business, international economics, economics or accounting, consider the opportunities you will have as a Business Fellow:

  • Take at least one course each semester offered exclusively to Business Fellows, taught by leading teacher-scholars in Elon's AACSB internationally accredited Martha and Spencer Love School of Business.
  • Explore what it takes to be a successful organization through site visits to area corporations during your first year.
  • Get a head start on the job market with special courses that emphasize responsible business leadership while preparing you for your job or internship search.
  • Work as a consultant or help manage a financial services firm during your senior year -- research financial products and design a marketing campaign, write regular investment newsletters and manage a portfolio of securities.
  • Study abroad with your Business Fellow classmates during your first Winter Term. Recently, Fellows have visited Poland and Mexico to gain valuable insights on new and emerging economies.
