Summer Session at the University of Chicago – Boldly Go Towards Your Future

By University of Chicago

University of Chicago

UChicago Summer Session offers Intensive summer programs for undergraduates and recent graduates from around the world who seek to challenge themselves as they move to the next stage in their academic and professional careers. We seek a diverse student body interested in turning ideas into meaningful action through collaboration and rigorous analytical thinking, and exploring emerging academic disciplines.

UChicago Summer Intensive Programs

The Summer Business Scholars Program (July 12-31, 2020), now in its 13th year, brings students considering a career in business to campus for a three-week immersion into Innovation and Entrepreneurship with outstanding faculty from the Polsky Center, part of the Chicago Booth School of Business, one of the top business schools in the world. SBSP encourages students from any academic discipline to participate, not just those with business backgrounds. SBSP’s experiential curriculum provides a solid foundation for those interested in addressing the biggest issues of our time – be they local or global, social or environmental.

The new Summer Financial Math Program (June 20 – July 10, 2020) invites students from any major who have strong quantitative skills to learn more about emerging careers in modern finance, which is more interdisciplinary than ever before. Financial markets have become increasingly complex, requiring specialized skills to effectively predict opportunities for profit and manage risk. These skills bring together mathematics, statistics, economics, finance, and computer science in ever-changing ways. Global demand has grown steadily for people who can understand, enhance, and develop new complex mathematical models, and individuals can choose from a variety of career paths in the industry, based on their skills and interests.

Applications for these programs are now open, with two deadlines: February 26 and March 18, 2020. Financial aid is available. Contact us at at any time with questions.
