In the fall, freshmen in the CBA Scholars Academy enroll in a zero-credit hour seminar course, taught by the Scholars Academy director.

Business With Conscience
Professor: Kelsey Medeiros, PhD
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Solutions for Minimizing Risk
Professor: Destynie Sewell, JD
Internship for Credit
Each Scholar is required to take an internship for academic credit. The internship may be in any business-related field. While we hold a "gap" semester from other classes fall of junior year, the internship may be completed any semester in the Scholars' undergraduate program.
The purpose of this course is to provide students with an international business and cultural experience through a study tour in a selected international location. Students develop an understanding of the factors that affect international business decisions by visiting American companies operating abroad and foreign companies that export goods and services to the U.S.
