Students are encouraged to study away for a J-term, a semester, or even a year. The School of Business frequently offers study away programs led by a business faculty member. Please contact us for information about upcoming J-term trips. Students planning to study away for a semester or longer should talk with the Wang Center to begin researching destinations as well as meet with the Director of Undergraduate Programs to discuss how your study away affects your academic plan.
Business scholarships are awarded annually to outstanding transfer and continuing business students. Most scholarships are awarded based on scholastic achievement and leadership skills. Other scholarships have more specific requirements.

PLU School of Business Ambassadors
PLU School of Business Ambassadors (SoBA) is a highly selective group of business students who work with the Dean and Coordinator of Engagement to promote the school’s programs, activities, and services. Ambassadors present at information sessions, coordinate recruitment activities for prospective students, represent the School of Business at special events, and help promote student engagement within the PLU community and the School of Business. Most importantly, SoBAs share their love for the PLU School of Business.
The PLU School of Business is always looking for students to become Ambassadors. If you want to share your love of the PLU School of Business please contact Dean Mark Mulder or Becki Torgerson. SoBA recruitment is generally held during the fall semester.
