Business Honors: The Carey Fellows Program
Preparation for Success in Business Leadership
Completion of a Carey Fellowship is a mark of distinction for students with career goals in management, international business, and finance. Carey Fellows also receive a scholarship. A certificate awarded at graduation recognizes the completion of additional requirements designed to prepare Fellows for leadership positions in global commerce.
Candidates for the Carey Fellows program must be sophomores who intend to declare a business minor by the end of their sophomore year. Deadline for applications is November of the sophomore year. Eligibility for the program requires a 3.33 GPA, which must be maintained throughout the period of the fellowship.
Program Structure and Requirements
Carey Fellows participate in a sequence of academic and skills-based experiences designed to equip them with the knowledge and training to succeed in global commerce.
Carey Fellows begin their participation in the program by enrolling in Sewanee Summer School following their sophomore year. Fellows must complete two full courses, normally Finance I and Business Ethics, during the summer school session. Students who have already completed one or both of these courses may pursue another schedule of summer courses in consultation with the pre-business advisor.
During the junior year, Carey Fellows spend one semester in an off-campus,paid internship, facilitated by the Director of The Babson Center for Global Commerce. To read more about one Carey Fellow's intern experience, click here.
During their junior and senior years, fellows must complete two proseminar courses (Econ 352 and Econ 353). The proseminars draw on academic work within the business minor to enhance spreadsheet modeling skills, writing skills, and speaking skills. One full course credit (four semester hours) will be awarded for completion of each proseminar. Admission to the proseminars, taught by the director of the Babson Center, is limited to Carey Fellows.
Events at The Babson Center For Global Commerce
Carey Fellows participate fully in the activities of the Babson Center and are required to attend a specified number of the center’s co-curricular events. These events bring leaders in business and global commerce to the Sewanee campus throughout the academic year.
