Holland Fellows

The William R. Holland International Business Fellowship

The Walker College of Business Holland International Business Fellowship is an applied business experience in Asia, with an emphasis on student research, engagement, and innovation. The fellowship serves to advance global learning while promoting research and collaboration among the College's top undergraduate students, faculty, and Fudan University in Shanghai, China. A 20 year partnership with Fudan University provides the foundation for an experience that brings different economic models into sustained conversation with each other and creates a context for understanding how regions, nations, and peoples might collaborate for mutual benefit in a global business environment.

Measured achievement, expert leadership, friends forever, and six hours college credit.

Over the course of the course of two semesters you will gain the competencies needed to be an international business leader, thinker and practitioner. Learn processes that challenge you personally and professionally, build an international network, and build your portfolio by presenting at the Shanghai Economic Forum, one of the most prestigious international forums held in Shanghai, China.
