Business Scholars Program



A Message from the Executive Director

Welcome to your future, indeed! As a Hanover College graduate and a successful business executive, it's been an honor to collaborate with aspiring business students from all over the globe. The BSP is a unique model, combining practical business concepts with a rigorous liberal arts curriculum. Our team is dedicated to providing an outstanding classroom experience and customized student services that set you on the path to success. The BSP is not a "one size fits all model." Business Scholars go on to success in a variety of industries including healthcare, advanced manufacturing, finance and accounting, and technology, to name a few. For Business Scholars wanting an immersive experience, pick the business major and hone in with one of our concentrations. For those wanting to combine practical business education with one of Hanover's many academic majors, select the business minor and set yourself apart. Regardless, our mission is to give you an advantage in the marketplace.

Thrive on Active Involvement

Hanover alumni contribute to the Business Scholars Program in numerous ways. They speak in the classroom, critique resumes, provide case study projects, conduct practice interviews and offer project-based internships and employment opportunities after graduation. Share your knowledge and experience with bright, motivated Business Scholars, and enjoy the satisfaction that comes from helping tomorrow's leaders.

Ways to get Involved

Alumni, business, government, and civic leaders bring diverse backgrounds and experience to our program. These groups serve as inspiring examples for Business Scholars in terms of character, community service and citizenship. Supporters of the Business Scholars Program provide several opportunities for Scholars to learn from practitioners.

The Business Scholars Program relies heavily on alumni for inspiration and successful implementation. This includes in-class case studies, skill development and career preparation, workshops, project-based internships, and networking events.
