Dean's Fellows

Dean's Fellows

Dean’s Fellows in the Heider College of Business are a select group of students who experience the business community first-hand, including meetings with Dean Hendrickson every week during the freshman year. From here, Dean’s Fellows expand their business network through conversations with business executives and private tours of Fortune 500, innovative startups and other top companies. This hands-on leadership emphasis prepares Dean’s Fellows for top internships, gainful employment and a business network to carry into their professional future.

Other key elements include:

Round 1:
A 3.7 high school GPA on a 4.0 scale and a minimum of ACT test score of 27 or SAT test score of 1210-1240.
Submit application by January 5

Round 2:
Attend Special Programs Day on January 28, 2018 or schedule a skype interview and complete an ethics challenge. Thirty students will be selected and notified in the beginning of March when other scholarship notifications go out.

Waitlist:
Students placed on the waitlist may seek admission into the Heider Fellows Program after successful completion of their first semester in the Heider College of Business.
