Business Scholars are a community of talented students with a strong interest in pursuing business-related fields who participate in opportunities developed to complement and enhance their academic program. This two-year experience begins with incoming First Year students engaged in a “learning by doing” environment which guides them through personal and professional development on their collegiate journey.
