Opportunities and Activities for Business and Economics Majors

Get Involved

Shark Tank

The Business and Economics Department at Wheaton offers you the opportunity to be involved at many different levels.



Students in either the Economics or the Business/Economics major may earn academic credit for work experience. Students may earn between 1 and 4 hours of academic credit; each hour of credit means 40 hours of work with the internship organization. Check out the Internship FAQs 


As part of Dr. Min-Dong Paul Lee’s Principles of Management course, students seek out a mentor, and then blog about what they learn. Hear from Business Economics students about the value of mentoring
