Where Sewanee Means Business
At Sewanee, we believe that the best preparation for a career in business is a broad-based liberal arts education. Many of today’s leaders in commerce attribute their success to the critical thinking skills, writing and speaking skills, and study of the human experience that are the core of the liberal arts tradition.
An important part of human experience is the world of business and commerce: The Babson Center for Global Commerce is where the University and the business world come together to assist students in preparing for successful careers as business leaders.
The Center’s array of co-curricular programs, integrated with the Wm. Polk Carey Pre-Business Program and Sewanee’s interdisciplinary business minor, provide Sewanee students a wealth of business-related opportunities, including:
- The Carey Fellows Business Honors Program for students seeking an immersive business experience as a part of their liberal arts education,
- Beecken Scholarships for business bridge programs at leading business schools,
- Internships at leading companies and nonprofit organizations,
- An innovative social entrepreneurship program
- Hands-on business skills training, and
- Personal interaction with some of the foremost business and social leaders in America and the world through its varied programs of lectures and discussion series.
The Center integrates its programs with the Office of Career & Leadership Development and Sewanee’s extensive alumni network to mentor students during their undergraduate years and to assist them in achieving their goals after graduation.
