College of Charleston, School of Business, Schottland Scholars


Awesome page! Love to find pages that show such a diverse range of talented students! As a fellow business student, I thought it would be helpful to provide some information on this new sci-fi thriller that kept me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end! It follows a man who joins a startup for an extreme virtual reality company to find himself tangled up in a corrupt business. I'm so excited for this film to release on VOD September 24th!
#proud of our very own Tori (‘18) who was just recently awarded the JW Griffin Leadership award, one of the first Voyagers to ever win! Our Schotties never fail to impress #schottlandscholars #cofc #marriott #voyager #leadership
Atlanta Schotties, come out to the COFC Atlanta Alumni Club's LinkedIn Networking Event on March 14th!
I "retired" from Schottland Scholars 2 years ago, and still I talk about it nearly every day. I can't help myself. Just this week I've: *heard from one of my students that she met Lauren Foster Summers at a Women in Business event *met with Tom Martin about Martin Scholars and Schottland Scholars *told a student about our alumni base in New York City *had TWO visits from William A Finn *recruited students for next year's class *met with two students who hope to apply During Give to What you Love, I always give to the Schottland Scholars program, my first academic love!
I just saw a trailer for a new documentary that looks really interesting! #GoodFortuneMovie tells the inspiring story of self made billionaire John Paul DeJoria, who's work ethic and perseverance allowed him to transform from a homeless gang member to become the founder of Patron Tequila and co-founder of Paul Mitchell. John was able to do all this while practicing his values of generosity and charity, making him a role model for conscious capitalism!

Go Schottie! 🔥🔥🔥🌟🙌💪

Feeding people is what brings joy to alumna Lauren Furey ‘19. Lately, she’s collaborated with nonprofit Lowcountry Local First to produce a cooking webinar that utilizes products from local farmers.

Fulfilling passions while helping others is what we like to see! 🤩 Click here to read the full story:

And our final Schottie spotlight for the class of 2020 - Abigail ‘Abbey’ Ucci. During Abbey’s time at CofC, she worked with and led fellow students through the inaugural HTMT Flip the Fair event, she’s contributed significantly to the work of the department and OTA as a student employee, she’s started, successfully run and sold her own online retail business, she’s worked as an independent consultant in web design and SEO, and she’s participated not once but twice in the HTMT Innovators incubator program! Recently she was awarded the HTMT Outstanding Student Staff Award and relocated to the Spartanburg, SC area to begin her innovator plan of developing and starting her own micro green/fungi farm! Always a stunner...we can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!

We congratulate all our 2020 Scholars on finishing strong! Have a great summer and we’ll see you in October for the BIG Celebration!!

It was a busy and hectic weekend for the Schottland Scholars who got to take a tour of the South Carolina Ports Authority Friday afternoon guided by the current President and CEO, Jim Newsome. On Saturday, a couple of us attended the Higdon Center 2019 Fall Leadership Conference hosted by entrepreneurs and industry leaders from throughout the country. On Sunday, ALL of us showed our support at the Memorial for Alexis Davis, someone who isn’t with us physically anymore but who still shares all of our experiences in spirit. Prayers still go out to the Davis Family. ❤️ #SchottiesForLife #everdaysanadventure

To the College of Charleston Community, we are very sad to announce the loss of our fellow student, beloved friend, and new member of the Schottland Scholars, Alexis Davis. Alexis was an outstanding student with several awards for academic excellence as well as a member of the Beta Gamma Sigma Honor Society. In addition to her endless achievements, she was an amazing human being who touched everyone’s life around her. Her endless compassion for others and hard working mentality were seen by all who knew her. She will he missed❤️

Highlight of the night goes to Mathew Battin! He’s not only one of our newest Schottland Scholars, but he is also a member of the William Aiken Fellows Society for the honors college, and is currently working as a student assistant for the Real Estate Department at the College of Charleston. You go Matt, keep up the hard work! 👏🏻🎉 #NewestClass #SchottlandScholars2020

We love having Mallory ‘18 back on campus! And we are lucky enough to have her helping the program as our GA this year! Excited to see where her Accounting skills and a shiny new MBA will bring to this Schotty 💫 🙌🤩


Mallory Banks is our first MBA Monday feature of the school year! Mallory is a 2018 graduate of the College of Charleston with a bachelor’s degree in Accounting.

She also interned for two years with a small accounting firm in Charleston, McCay Kiddy.

After graduation, Mallory accepted a full-time offer with McCay Kiddy as a Tax and Audit Associate.During her time at the firm, she was able to work closely with her team members, managers and partners to get through multiple federal deadlines on both the tax and audit sides. She also worked in other departments when needed such as client accounting services and support staff.

Currently, Mallory is working for a multi-brand food and beverage company. She is developing skills to enhance guest experiences and assist the management team.
