New Wheaton business major offers internships

Posted 4/8/13

NORTON – Wheaton College has established a new major in business and management aimed to prepare students as future organizational leaders. It will offer internships, which will be required as part of the program, to students through affiliations with business and nonprofit organizations.

“This is a comprehensive and novel approach to the study of business and management that takes advantage of the intellectual strength and range of the liberal arts,” said Provost Linda Eisenmann. “The study of business may not be considered a traditional discipline within the liberal arts, but the design of this program fits Wheaton perfectly. … Our emphasis on cross-disciplinary study provides a foundation that will help us to offer an outstanding course of study in business.”

Wheaton College President Ronald Crutcher said in a statement that the major also will address “the nation’s need for a workforce of skilled and flexible learners who can adapt to a rapidly changing, technological and global society.

“In survey after survey, business leaders across the country consistently say that they want to hire employees who possess the critical thinking, communication and creative, problem-solving skills that liberal arts study emphasizes,” Crutcher said. •
