The Brock Scholars major is an imaginative, demanding, and competitive program of study designed for University Fellows and outstanding pre-business students who desire to major in business. Brock Scholars are selected annually through a rigorous application process in the spring of the freshman year. The program allows students the flexibility to create their own unique curriculum, coupled with international travel, student research, hands-on experience through internships, and a high degree of faculty involvement.
