Management Fellows Program

The Management Fellows Program was established in 1980 to connect students interested in business and management with the best of a liberal arts education and real-world experience.

The Management Fellows Program blends a traditional liberal arts curriculum with real-world experiences. Students may major in any discipline, but are required to take courses in economics, accounting, statistics and ethics. In addition to the required course work, Management Fellows learn from speakers who participate in the McDermond Center Lecture Series and complete a full-time, semester-long, credit bearing internship.

All Management Fellows must complete course requirements in the major of their choice, all other University distribution and competency requirements, and the Management Fellows core curriculum as listed below (click the links to each course for further description):

GROUP A:       EIGHT REQUIRED CREDITS    
HONR EXP   Business and the Liberal Arts (0.5 credit)
ECON 100 Introduction to Economics
ECON 220 Financial Accounting 
ECON 350 Statistics for Econ & Mgmt
HONR 400 Management Fellows Senior Seminar
HONR 310 Management Readings/Business Writing
HONR 320 Supervised Internship (two credits)

Two academic credits will be offered for successful completion of an internship (HONR 320).  A grade of “S” (satisfactory) or “U” (unsatisfactory) will be given for the internship.  Any student receiving a grade of “U” will not receive academic credit for the internship. Only under extraordinary circumstances will courses be approved to take the place of required courses.  With the exception of HONR 320, students must take all courses required for the Management Fellows Program for letter grades (i.e., no pass-fail).  All required courses must be taken at DePauw University.

All Management Fellows must complete ECON 100 and ECON 220 by the end of their third semester at DePauw.  By the end of their fourth semester students must complete group B, group C, and Econ 350.  During the junior year students must take HONR 310 & HONR 320 which  means all course requirements must be met by the end of the junior year, excluding the Business Ethics course, and HONR 400.
