Summer Business Scholars

A Day In the Life

We’ve designed a schedule that combines academic coursework with professional skill-building. Scholars will explore the disciplines of finance, accounting, and marketing. You'll also develop expertise in teamwork, professional networking, and career planning.

You'll work and engage with people with varied interests, backgrounds, and ambitions - much like Chicago Booth’s MBA program. The Summer Business Scholars Program will open your eyes to new ideas and different points of view.
