Wall Street Journal Award

The Educational Service Bureau of Dow Jones developed the Wall Street Journal Student Achievement Award program in 1948. The scholarship program is a collaborative effort between the Wall Street Journal and participating universities to honor excellence in the academics.  Recipients of the Wall Street Journal Award were chosen by the faculty and primarily chosen from the Finance or Accounting concentrations.  In 2010, the award was discontinued, but the College of Business has developed another recognition program, the College of Business Advisory Board Award of Excellence.
