One of the main goals of The Linde Institute is to prepare students for a variety of careers, empowering them to make their mark on society. An essential part of The Linde Institute is the business, economics, and management (BEM) undergraduate program. The Caltech BEM option is unique among other undergraduate business majors because it emphasizes a rigorous, quantitative, and interdisciplinary approach to the study of business, business strategy, and finance.
In addition to coursework, a central part of this educational approach is research, in which undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral scholars work closely with faculty on various projects. The Linde Institute also supports the creation of new experimental courses and awards fellowships to Caltech graduate students with interests that align with one of The Linde Institute's three areas of research concentration: finance; entrepreneurship; and economics and computer science.
In addition, The Linde Institute sponsors career panels with Caltech alumni who have gone to successful careers in finance, management, and consulting.
