Why Become a Fellow?

“Being a Center for Business and Economics Fellow is a truly rewarding experience. It gives students a unique perspective when it comes to programming in the Business and Economics department. Over the last year, I have had the opportunity to build strong relationships with many of the professors in the department, as I have worked side by side with them on many occasions. Additionally, reaching out to alumni and guest speakers for our Lunch Time Learning events and other programming has given me the chance to meet others who care greatly about the college and a chance to develop my networking skills. I would highly recommend applying to become a CBE Fellow to any interested and dedicated business and economics student.” Troy Elphinstone ‘19, 2nd year CBE Fellow
