The Sheedy Family Program in Economy, Enterprise, and Society is a robust intellectual community. Students, faculty, and industry leaders explore the intersections of business and the liberal arts through rigorous coursework, collaborative research, meaningful dialogue, and purpose-driven career discernment.
Students pursuing academic programs in both the College of Arts and Letters and the Mendoza College of Business are eligible to apply for this selective, cohort-based program.
Our primary aims are:
- To build community among students with a serious interest in business and the liberal arts and to connect them with faculty and industry leaders in their fields.
- To provide a rigorous curriculum that helps students more holistically connect their liberal arts education to their training in business, including enriching their perspectives on business and work through humanities-style dialogue.
- To cultivate professional development opportunities that help students with liberal arts backgrounds bring those backgrounds to bear in their professional lives; to help students navigate Notre Dame’s excellent job training resources and networks with an eye toward meaningful career discernment.
We do this by providing program participants with resources, such as:
- Rigorous coursework at the intersection of business and the liberal arts
- Eligibility for internal and external internship funding
- Research funding and mentorship
- Program retreats
- Research and writing boot camps
- Community dinners and dialogue events
- Immersive business treks
- Hands-on workshops from visiting business leaders
- Career planning and recruitment events
