Integrated Program in Business & Entrepreneurship

Social entrepreneurship thriving at Earlham
Social entrepreneurship thriving at Earlham
Earlhamites are using social entrepreneurship to propose solutions related to poverty in east Africa, conflict resolution in India and Pakistan and access to education in the Republic of the Congo.

Contrary to popular belief, successful entrepreneurs and business leaders come from all academic disciplines and majors — you don’t have to major in Business to be interested in business! Just ask Ted Turner (Classics major) or Carly Fiorina (Medieval History and Philosophy major).

Special Learning Opportunities

Participants develop skills in collaborative leadership, financial analysis and modeling, project and time management, business research and analysis, and creative problem-solving.

Students integrate academic content and professional skills through internships, off-campus case studies, and faculty-student project work. 

A faculty coordinator with a background in business and social entrepreneurship directs the program and helps students make connections to alumni, practitioners in the field, and potential employers.

Workshops, speakers, and events scheduled throughout the year offer lots of opportunities to learn new skills, discuss innovative business practices, and hear from leaders in the field. 

Career Connections

The faculty coordinator helps advise students on appropriate academic courses across the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities to complement their interests in Business.

Linking the Integrated Program with either the Global Management or Economics major allows for a comprehensive experience integrating theory and practice.

Earlham’s Integrated Program in Business and Entrepreneurship is designed to help students build tangible knowledge, skills and abilities to accelerate the transition from college to career.
