Business oriented students have access to a number of unique opportunities when they decide to join the Presbyterian College community. Professors bring their wide variety of expertise to provide students internships and a fascinating lecture series.
In addition to placing an international business component in the core curriculum, the Department of Economics and Business Administration offers its majors a variety of short-term international study opportunities in countries across the globe.
With the support of a grant provided by BB&T, the Business Department also features a special course dedicated to exploring the basis and workings of capitalism. The grant not only allows us to put students in contact with influential members of the business community but also supports students by giving them the chance to pursue unique internship opportunities.
The Business Department realizes that textbooks can only provide so much information when it comes to real world questions regarding appropriate business ethics. Therefore, with the help of a generous donation made by local businessman Mr. Robert M. Vance, we have developed the Vance Lecture on Ethics. The lecture series invites high-profile leaders in the business world to come and speak with students on how to run a successful business that still maintains a moral code that employees can be proud of and refer to during day-to-day activities.
The internship program shows its commitment to helping students excel both in academics and in life. The Business Department, in conjunction with Career Development and Student Success, has helped hundreds of students find internships that fit their passions and provide an experience that will last long after graduation.
