For students interested in business and entrepreneurship, Earlham offers a unique set of opportunities.

Our global management major provides students with a global perspective of modern business and nonprofit management. Global management majors can choose one of six tracks to focus their studies: finance, marketing, international business, leadership and change, social entrepreneurship and social change, or supply chain management and information technology. 

Center for Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Creativity
Students interested in starting their own ventures have access to resources and connections through Earlham’s Center for Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Creativity. The Center frequently sponsors business plan competitions. In 2016, a group of Earlham students—Team “Magic Bus”—won the Hult Prize of $1 million to fund their start-up, which aimed to optimize public transportation in developing countries and meet former President Bill Clinton’s “Crowded Urban Spaces” challenge of doubling the income of 10 million people by 2022.
