The Emerging Leaders Program (ELP) is designed to introduce underclassmen to teamwork, public speaking, and presenting skills as an analyst, while also providing associates with the opportunity to practice leadership skills by managing a team.
Spring 2024 applications are live! Applications are due Sunday, February 11 at 11:59 p.m EST. 15-minute virtual interviews will be conducted the week of February 12th. We are excited about your interest in SWIB!
We encourage applicants of all backgrounds and previous experience in business is not required to apply. The Associate application is open to all who have completed at least one previous semester of ELP. Looking forward to seeing your application!
Analysts in the ELP will gain experience through a 10-week series of professional development workshops and team-based projects. The skill-building workshops cover a range of topics to help members succeed in a business setting, including resume critiques, interview best practices, Powerpoint skills, networking advice, and navigating various career paths.
Participants will be able to apply the skills learned through a semester-long research project related to an industry of their choice. Each team of analysts is led by an associate, who has completed the program. Past presentation topics include:
S&T: Home Depot Stock Pitch
Marketing: The Use of Influencers in High Fashion Campaigns
Investment Banking: Porsche's IPO
Venture Capital: NFT Industry Overview & Investment Pitch
ESG/Impact: Patagonia's ESG Initiatives
