The Robert Day School of Economics and Finance

Non-Degree Programs

In addition to the Robert Day School’s degree options, RDS also offers a variety of non-degree programs, some of which are available to students from any of the undergraduate Claremont Colleges. These programs have been created to give students a unique experience in which they become well-rounded individuals who are prepared to navigate complex issues while serving as organizational leaders upon graduation.

Robert Day Scholars

One of the key offerings of the Robert Day School is the Robert Day Scholars Program which prepares highly motivated students for leadership roles in business, finance, government, and not-for-profit organizations. Any undergraduate student enrolled at The Claremont Colleges can apply as a sophomore to become a BA Scholar. Currently only CMC students may choose to instead apply for selection as a BAMA Scholar. Robert Day Scholars receive a scholarship, while they demonstrate leadership potential in a variety of fields, complete curricular requirements in financial economics, accounting, and leadership/organizational behavior, benefit from leadership development activities, and receive individualized career management support.

Leadership Development Programs

Consistent with CMC’s mission to “educate its students for thoughtful and productive lives and responsible leadership in business, government, and the professions,” the Robert Day School facilitates a series of leadership development programs that are designed to enhance the students’ educational experience and equip them with a skill set that will lead to future success. Through participating in workshops, a speaker series, a case competition, or networking events, students leave Claremont prepared to demonstrate leadership in a number of capacities.

Off-Campus Programs

The Robert Day School is fortunate to operate at a College that supports its students participating in off-campus study programs. By partnering with the Center for Global Education, RDS offers a new semester program in Silicon Valley and a summer program at Yonsei University in Seoul, Korea which is led by RDS Professor Manfred Keil.
