Curriculum

Neeley Fellows fits into any of the degree plans offered in the Neeley School of Business. We also try to accommodate those students who wish to pursue an additional degree outside of Neeley. All students should consult their academic advisor in Neeley Student Success Services to determine specific course sequencing.

Neeley Fellows take the same courses as other Neeley Students (with the exception of Data Analytics) but different teaching philosophies are used, emphasis is more in-depth and there is a focus on experiential learning.  Neeley Fellows take most core classes with their cohort from sophomore to senior year.

Program Sequence

Neeley Fellows complete a challenging, curricular and co-curricular program over their Sophomore, Junior and Senior years. Neeley Fellows are strongly encouraged to study abroad. Students in the program have an opportunity to take a semester abroad during the spring of their Junior year. Alternatively, they have an opportunity to travel internationally with the program and study abroad during the summer mini term as part of the Responsible Global Business Perspectives course taken during the last 8 weeks of the spring semester of Junior year. The Responsible Global Business Perspectives course is not a required part of the Neeley Fellows curriculum to allow for our students that study abroad, but is expected for those students who are not doing a semester abroad.

Neeley Fellows and the John V. Roach Honors College

Meg Thompson

Neeley Fellows has a close relationship with the John V. Roach Honors College, a community of curious, ambitious students who seek to enhance their TCU education through high-impact learning experiences beyond their majors. The unique learning opportunities students receive through the John V. Roach Honors College complements the curricular and co-curricular mission of Neeley Fellows. We therefore strongly encourage (though we do not require) all current and prospective Neeley Fellows to seek admission to the John V. Roach Honors College and to complete the Lower- and Upper-Division Honors College requirements to graduate as an honors Laureate.

Neeley Fellows who are not yet members of the Honors College may apply for admission in the fall. Application information and key dates will be communicated via the Honors College website.

Many Honors College requirements can be satisfied through the Neeley Fellows curriculum.

Lower-Division Honors Requirements 

To complete the Lower-Division Honors, students need to fulfill five requirements: three Honors electives and two Honors Cultural Visions courses (or approved study abroad programs). Sophomore Neeley Fellows courses in Fundamentals of Accounting, Legal Environment of Business, Financial Management, and Marketing Management count as Honors Electives. The Cultural Visions requirements can be satisfied by taking designated Honors Cultural Visions courses outside the Neeley School, a semester of TCU study abroad, or TCU approved study abroad courses for which students earn at least three credit hours.

Upper-Division Honors Requirements

To earn Upper-Division Honors, students must complete either Departmental Honors (a research project conducted over two semesters under the supervision of a faculty mentor) or University Honors (three Honors colloquia, small seminars in which junior and senior Honors students from various majors explore important, big-picture questions). You should discuss these options with your Honors College academic advisor and with Dean Muller as part of your academic advising in Neeley Fellows.

Honors College students completing the Neeley Fellows Program are bound by the GPA and other requirements of the John V. Roach Honors College in order to graduate as Honors Laureates.

This program matches students with Neeley Fellows Alumni for insight, guidance and support, while offering the Alumni Coaches an opportunity to strengthen ties to Neeley Fellows and to the Neeley School of Business.

During the Junior year, Neeley Fellows in student groups are matched with Neeley Fellows Alumni to serve as their Alumni Coaching Team.

The goals of the Alumni Coaching program are  to:

  • Create connections between Neeley Fellows alumni and current students.
  • Foster exchange of professional ideas and expertise and provide coaching on progress towards personal and professional development goals among Neeley Fellows alumni and students.
  • Build the Neeley Fellows network while strengthening ongoing connection between Neeley Fellows alumni and program.

Students are expected to actively explore value-added benefit during the meeting with their assigned Alumni Coaching Teams and to proactively build their network to best meet their own personal and professional needs in addition to meeting the objectives of the class assignment.

We strive to serve our local and global communities in collaboration with non-profit organizations by applying business knowledge and leadership skills.
