It is thus appropriate for those who aspire to careers in management, marketing, accounting, and finance as well as those fascinated by the engagement of business with the larger social, political, cultural, and technological issues of our time.

Each year, as many as five Franklin & Marshall College applicants will receive a minimum $10,000 per semester tuition scholarship to Wake Forest.
