Introduction

OBS 2014Oberlin Business Scholars 2014 with Jeff Goodby P '04, of Goodby, Silverstein & Partners in San Francisco ("Got Milk?")

The Oberlin Business Scholars program provides selected Scholars from all majors with a foundation of skills, knowledge, and contacts to help them more successfully compete for jobs and internships in a wide range of business disciplines. The program consists of a 2-credit module course that includes discussions, lectures, case studies, and project assignments; and culminates in a trip to a city such as New York, Boston, or San Francisco, where Scholars have the opportunity to meet with alumni and friends of the College who are leaders in the fields of business and finance. 

This experiential opportunity is co-managed by Career Center and Development staff of the College, and has been funded through the generosity of alumni since 2003.

As a result of the Program, students will be able to:

  • Clarify job and career focus through greater understanding of the finance and consulting industries.
  • Increase marketability to employers through acquisition of industry knowledge and business-related skills, including business case analysis, project management, teamwork and presentation skills.
  • Gain familiarity with basic financial analysis and mergers and acquisition.
  • Utilize effective job search skills, including resume writing, networking, and interviewing skills.
