Dean's Fellows

Dean's Fellows

Dean’s Fellows in the Heider College of Business are a select group of business students who experience the business community first-hand through leadership conversations, including face-time 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 and other top companies. The leadership emphasis prepares Dean’s Fellows for top internships, gainful employment and a business network to carry into their professional future.
