Class of 2013 Carey Fellows – students in Sewanee's business honors program – recently traveled to New York for an intensive round of networking interviews and briefings with business leaders in the fields of finance and investment banking, fine arts, and entertainment, many of whom are themselves University alumni. 

The New York networking event is one of many opportunities open to students selected for the five-semester business honors program. Carey Fellows take additional coursework, complete a one semester paid internship, and participate in events at the Babson Center for Global Commerce.

While in New York, the Carey Fellows also met  Sewanee alumni and friends of the University for a networking dinner.

New Bloomberg Terminal in duPont Library

Regents increase student-run endowment management fund, Bloomberg terminals add research support

The student-run Investment Club’s first-year performance was good enough that Sewanee's Board of Regents has now placed an additional $200,000 under the club’s management. Including the first-year return on the original funding, the club now manages just over $500,000 of the endowment. And as the club takes on the additional responsibility, its members will have a powerful new tool to aid their investment decisions: access to the Bloomberg Professional Service platform that is used by many of the top investment management firms and stock traders. 10.08.14
