Investing in excellence through collaborative research for a better and brighter future.

The College of Business provides undergraduate business students with the opportunity to learn about and participate in the business research process. Students have the opportunity to step outside the classroom and find mentorship, community and a deeper understanding of their academic concentation or interest.

The research fellowships last for one academic year and compensate the Fellow for the hours worked. 


In addition to complotting nine hours of research support alongside faculty members each week, students participate in a 1-hour per week seminar with the other fellows. These seminars are designed to provide students with support as well as a comfortable setting to learn about business research, the research process, and pathways for pursuing a career involiving research.
