Where Sewanee Means Business

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 human experience they received during a college education grounded in the liberal arts tradition.

An important part of human experience is the complex world of business and commerce.  The Babson Center for Global Commerce is where the University and the business world come together to assist students in preparing for successful careers as principled and informed business leaders.

Business-Related Opportunities

Carey Fellows

For students with career goals in management, global business, consulting, and finance, the designation as a Carey Fellow brings with it a mark of distinction and recognition coming from the completion of additional requirements designed to prepare these select students for leadership positions in global commerce.

Visiting Speakers Series

Our ongoing programs, the Graham Executives-in-Residence, Humphreys Entrepreneur-in-Residence, and Bryan Viewpoints Speaker Series give Sewanee students regular opportunities to hear directly from global business leaders whose experience, knowledge, and skills have carried them to the top of their fields.

Summer Business Studies Scholarships

These unique programs introduce students to management, team building, strategy, marketing, organizational development, accounting and finance training. Beecken Scholarships provide selected students substantial scholarships to attend summer business ‘bridge’ programs at four elite business schools. Sewanee-Vanderbilt Scholarships allow students to attend the Accelerator Summer Business Program at the Owen Graduate School of Management at Vanderbilt University.

Learning Beyond the Classroom

A key component of the Wm. Polk Carey Pre-Business Program is that it supports Sewanee students aiming for careers in business. It offers various events, conferences, skills training, co-curricular and experiential learning opportunities.
