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.
