About UChicago Booth Summer Business Scholars Program at University of Chicago

Application for Summer 2019 SBSP opens in January 2019.

For those early in your college careers, Chicago Booth’s Summer Business Scholars Program (SBSP) is designed to help you build your business acumen and prepare yourself for future internships and full-time jobs. The three-week program provides a model environment for bold future leaders to strengthen their grasp of business frameworks through an experiential curriculum delivered by world-renowned faculty and industry experts. 

Scholars graduate with heightened analytical skills, an unparalleled global network, and the groundwork to turn insight into action. With SBSP, you will return to your undergraduate institution or head to your first job or internship with a newfound confidence and a distinct competitive advantage.

Summer Business Scholars gain a firm understanding of business frameworks from Booth’s renowned faculty through an experiential curriculum at our Hyde Park and downtown Chicago campuses. 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.

What students think about University of Chicago

    2018 Summer Session student

    This course reminded me why I love economics. In addition to the engaging and interesting topic of labor economics, [the instructor] would often take time to talk about the history of the Chicago School of Economics and regularly bring a novel perspective on any topic we as students were curious about. It felt as though this course brought together nearly all the topics I had covered in the economics major, but this time in a coherent and integrated framework.

    2017 Summer Session student

    I now am more conscious of tradeoffs both in the world of economics and outside. To me, everything is now a question of what am I willing to give up to get what I want? I have already caught two specific examples of economic statistic misuse (i.e. flows to stock comparisons and intermediate good accountancy errors). I greatly enjoyed learning about the topic. I feel that no matter what I do when I graduate I will have to deal with the economy and money as I will always be a consumer. I think this class greatly contributed to my cultural literacy and an understanding of how the world works, which shifted my perspective-my favorite part about learning.

    2011 Summer Business Scholars Program student

    I had minimal business exposure before entering this program. Mainly for myself as a classical singer, my background was focused heavily in the performing arts. This program opened up so many doors for me and, more importantly, offered me a completely new way of looking at the world.
