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 Financial & Managerial Accounting, Marketing, Innovation & Strategy, and Integrated Strategic Management. 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.

While there is no "typical" day during SBSP, you can find a summary of what our students were up to in 2018 below:
