Business Scholars Program

Applying - Prospective Students

Senior Celebration 2015Admission Criteria:

The Business Scholars Program is designed to enhance a student's liberal arts major with business knowledge, skills and experience for any career.  Though selective, there is not an admission cap.  Applicants do not compete against each other; all qualified applicants will be admitted.

Admission will be based on three areas, none of which will serve as the sole determining factor:

Aptitude: Measured by the applicant's academic performance and interpersonal communication skills. Successful Business Scholars must be able to communicate effectively and work well with others to solve problems.

Engagement: The Business Scholars Program is designed to promote future business leaders. Students admitted into the program should demonstrate engagement outside of the classroom through past volunteerism, participation in clubs or organizations, leadership positions, and community involvement.

Enthusiasm: Successful applicants will share an excitement about learning and exploring ways their education can be connected to life after Hanover College. The nature of the Program requires Business Scholars to interact and participate in activities that will assist them in preparation for the job market or graduate school.

Admission Process:

There are three opportunities for students to apply to the Business Scholars Program. You may apply as a high school student, or as a first year or sophomore student at Hanover College.

High School Applicants: High school student applicants must complete an application and submit a resume and two recommendations. Applicants will be evaluated based upon high school transcripts, test scores and level of engagement and experience as demonstrated on their resumes and recommendations.

Applicants must apply to Hanover College before being admitted to the Business Scholars Program.
