Center for Business & Finance


The Center for Business & Finance is dedicated to providing students with a well-rounded business program consisting of foundational concepts, parameters, and standards that develop into authentic, real-world business experiences. 

Throughout the program, students explore different areas of the business world both on and off campus, including opportunities with HB's for-profit café, the HathCAFF and HBSIG, the Hathaway Brown School Investment Group. Additionally, students can take part in internship programs tailored to their specific interests, enjoy site visits to local banks, businesses, investment firms, and many more immersive experiential opportunities. Upon graduation, Business & Finance Fellows are ready for entry into a college-level program, which allows for future growth and development. 


Students begin work in ninth grade by taking Business & Finance I, delving into all aspects of the field. Exploration into business and entrepreneurship continues with Business & Finance II/III in grades 10 and 11. Here students develop a business plan with the ultimate goal of starting a business and becoming a true entrepreneur.

Business & Finance I (grade 9, generally) 

Business & Finance II/III (grades 10 and 11, generally) 

Business & Finance Fellow Boardroom Presentations (grade 12)
