Virtual Business at Sewanee 

At Sewanee, we believe the best preparation for a career in business is a broad-based liberal arts education. Many of today’s leaders attribute their success to the critical thinking, writing, and listening skills central to the liberal arts tradition. The Babson Center for Global Commerce invites you to spend some time as its guest to explore our business curriculum, hear from economics majors, business minors, and our Carey Fellows business honors students. Join us as we discuss and explore the business of business at Sewanee!
