What alumni say about the program:

The Business Fellows Program fortifies the unique Elon Experience. As a Business Fellow, I was not only given a competitive advantage against classmates but my entire post-grad and career path were accelerated. As a First Year, I was awarded one-on-one career advising, and by the time interviewing came around for the big Junior-year Internship, I was exceeding expectations on both Technical and Behavioral questions. Outside of the classroom, peers, faculty members, and staff sought me out for opportunities around campus: I sat on the LSB Board as the Undergraduate Representative, led the 2023 CFA Team to a State Title, and made an impact as President of Women in Finance. If not for the Business Fellows, I would not have learned the skills, built the resilience, and made the connections — both in and outside of Elon — to be prepared and excited for what the future holds.

My experience as a part of Elon’s Business Fellows program has been nothing short of phenomenal. Being a part of a cohort of people with different backgrounds, identities, and career aspirations has provided me with a unique classroom environment within our Fellows classes, with everyone encouraged to provide their own input on various business topics.
The Elon 1010 class my cohort took during our first year, which included workshops provided by the Love School of Business, pushed me to think about the objectives I needed to obtain during my time at Elon in order to land a job by the time I graduate.
The Business Fellows program’s emphasis on being globally minded has led to multiple opportunities for traveling abroad as well. The program organized my cohort a January term trip to Dubai during our second year at Elon, which opened our eyes to how business is conducted in countries that practice Islam. The experience encouraged many of us to travel abroad again while at Elon; I went to Japan the following year, using the abroad stipend the program provides all Business Fellows.
It’s fair to say I have nothing but great things to say about the Business Fellows program at Elon. It has provided me with multiple priceless opportunities and experiences and has connected me with people who have helped make my college experience at Elon memorable.

Business Fellows was the highlight of my time at Elon. Much of my success during college and post-graduation I can credit to the knowledge I gained through my experiences in the Business Fellows program. The cohort pushed me to be a better student and leader. The skills I gained through Business Fellows have had a direct effect on my success in my career as I have been able to continue to grow as a leader and team member in my job. Due to the Business Fellows program, I felt prepared and ready to succeed in my career after graduation. The Business Fellows program was challenging; however, the challenge pushed me to work harder and reap more benefits out of my Elon education than I ever expected. The knowledge and leadership skills that Business Fellows equipped me with during my four years at Elon has continued to pay dividends in my career.

The Business Fellows Program molded my future both inside and outside of the classroom more than I ever could have guessed on move-in day. College is a time of development in all facets of your life – and the Business Fellows cohort was the perfect group to have around me. Taking on challenges, gaining new experiences, and engaging in the Elon community developed my cohort into confident, knowledgeable leaders who have branched out far and wide in the business world. I can confidently say that the skillset I developed in the program has enabled my success professionally, and the friendships that I formed in the program have extended much further than just my years on campus.
