Oberlin Business Scholars


Introduction | The Details | Application


The Oberlin Business Scholars Program is an experiential opportunity at Oberlin carried out through structured Winter Term projects. It is funded by the generosity of our alumni.

The program is an intensive winter term project that provides selected Scholars from all majors with a foundation of skills, knowledge, and contacts to successfully compete for jobs and internships in the fields of finance and consulting. Through discussions, lectures, and on-site visits with Oberlin alumni and friends of the College, Scholars interact with and learn from leaders in these fields.

As a result of the Program, students will be able to:

  • Clarify job and career focus through greater understanding of the finance and consulting industries.
  • Increase marketability to employers through acquisition of industry knowledge and business-related skills, including business case analysis, project management, teamwork and presentation skills.
  • Gain familiarity with basic financial analysis and mergers and acquisition.
  • Utilize effective job search skills, including resume writing, networking, and interviewing skills.
