Business Scholars Program, Indiana and Xavier business schools' logos

Hanover College has established privileged access for students who wish to pursue a master of science in accounting degree at Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business or the master of science in accountancy at Xavier University’s Williams College of Business.

Students in Hanover’s Business Scholars Program (BSP) who complete the College’s accounting pathway are eligible to enroll in these intensive, full-time graduate degree programs immediately upon graduation – and, potentially, sit for the certified public accountants (CPA) exam the following year.

“Our partnerships with Indiana University and Xavier University provide an important extension to our Business Scholars Program and our students who are interested in pursuing an advanced business degree,” said Hanover President Lake Lambert. “The opportunities provided by these outstanding programs are a testament to the quality undergraduate programs available on our campus.”

To further qualify, Hanover graduates must have a 3.20 grade-point average or higher, submit letters of recommendation from two faculty members and meet all prerequisite course requirements. An interview with program faculty or staff is also required at Indiana. Completion of the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) is not required for admission to either program.

Members of the College’s Class of 2018 who meet all requirements will be eligible for admission to the programs at Indiana and Xavier.

“The partnerships with Xavier and Indiana are part of the BSP’s ongoing commitment to deliver innovative business education to our students,” said John Riddick, director of Hanover’s Business Scholars Program. “Business Scholars will be given the opportunity to combine the BSP’s experiential business training with Hanover’s rich liberal arts curriculum and the rigor of a graduate accounting program from two outstanding business schools.”
