DELAWARE, OH (08/29/2022)– Shannon O’Malley of Ashville, OH, is among 14 first-year students at Ohio Wesleyan University selected as 2022-2023 Economics Management Fellows.

The competitive, four-year fellowships are awarded each fall by Ohio Wesleyan’s Department of Economics and Business and by the university’s Woltemade Center for Economics, Business and Entrepreneurship.

At OWU, O’Malley plans to study Pre-Law and International Studies.

To be considered for the fellowship program, students must indicate an interest in economics, business administration, management (marketing or finance), accounting, or international business on their OWU applications; have high-school records that indicate a potential for high achievement at Ohio Wesleyan; and complete personal interviews with Department of Economics and Business faculty.

Being selected for the EMF program ensures the first-year students receive an academic adviser from Economics and Business, receive sophomore or junior peer-mentors as freshmen, and are paired with professional mentors as seniors.

Fellows also are enrolled in a first-year seminar open only to them. The seminar is team-taught by the entire Economics and Business faculty, helping the students to quickly build relationships with their new professors.

In the second year of the program, students take a faculty-escorted study trip to a major U.S. city, such as New York, where they meet with distinguished Ohio Wesleyan alumni and other professionals working in the city in business or government.
