The world of business has many doors.
Step in and open yours.

At Sewanee, we believe 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, writing instruction, speaking skills, and study of the humanities they received during a college education grounded in the liberal arts tradition.

The Babson Center for Global Commerce is a campus resource dedicated to the business challenges for our time, encouraging rigorous scholarship and applied practices. The Center is committed to inquiry, networking, and experiential learning and explores how individuals can lead into a world of business and how business and society can live together for balanced growth and development. 

Engaging students in co-curricular programs enables them to enter society as principled citizens able to succeed and lead in a global economy. The Center offers a range of opportunities inside and outside the classroom to work with faculty, students, and business leaders to understand and explore contemporary business issues. Join our community of thinkers and doers.
