First Class of BEL Scholars Graduates

Seven years ago, the first cohort of Business Emerging Leaders (BEL) scholars first arrived on campus as high schoolers, just beginning their journey with WSB. They spent a portion of their summers taking business courses, exploring career pathways, and gaining leadership skills. They also participated in corporate visits, community development, and a healthy dose of summer fun in Madison.

Now, this inaugural group of BEL scholars are newly minted WSB alumni, having graduated in May eager to start their careers and apply all they’ve learned. With job placements ranging from BP to Spaulding Ridge, these young professionals are ready to make their mark on the world—taking with them the spirit of all they experienced as BEL scholars and Business Badgers.
