Complimenting the academic curriculum is a student-managed investment club that invests over $4 million (part of the College's endowment) to provide funding for student scholarships and an available internship program that provides opportunities for you to work with for-profit or nonprofit organization while still at Wooster.

The Wilson Lecture Series brings prominent business leaders to campus to teach a class, meet with students, and to provide public lectures. CEOs of Fortune 500 companies Federal Reserve Board members, nonprofit presidents, and entrepreneurs have all been part of this series.

Students who are interested in international business may also wish to consider the International Business Economics minor which combines the study of business economics with foreign language and culture (currently French, German, or Spanish). With this minor, the senior project applies the knowledge from your business economics courses to the unique aspect of a foreign culture.
