International classmates and a unique nonprofit perspective

Through Earlham's Business and Nonprofit Management program, students become effective leaders in a multicultural world.

With small classes and a highly diverse student body, students develop rigorous analytical skills as they participate in collaborative team decision-making and practice new leadership styles. College committees, student organizations, and community service activities encourage them to build leadership and organizational skills. Hands-on internships in local businesses provide students with real-world experience for applying classroom knowledge.

Business and non-profit management graduates have assumed leadership positions in regional and international businesses, scientific laboratories, social service agencies, international organizations, and arts councils and museums.

Earlham alumni regularly pursue advanced degrees. Recent graduates have attended Ball State University, University of Maryland and others. Since the top graduate programs now require several years of work experience before admission, our Center for Career Education staff work with students to identify appropriate positions for their interests and abilities when they graduate.
