The coursework will build scholars' business acumen and enhance their appeal to employers by strengthening their critical thinking, verbal and written communication, problem-solving, leadership and teamwork skills. Scholars also build relationships with alumni and top-tier corporations through lectures and company visits.
Bonded by a shared sense of curiosity in pursuit of deeper understanding, our scholars come from a variety of undergraduate majors - from business administration and engineering to art history and sociology. Additionally, SBSP alumni represent more than 250 colleges and educational institutions from the United States and abroad, creating a truly global network of graduates.
