Apply for Harvard Business School's
Summer Venture in Management Program
Application Deadline: May 17, 2010
The Summer Venture in Management Program (SVMP) hosted by Harvard Business School (http://www.hbs.edu/mba/svmp/)is a week of HBS instruction (June 19-25, 2010) that exposes high-potential college students in the summer between their junior and senior year to the HBS MBA experience and the variety of opportunities a degree in management can afford. This twenty-year HBS tradition demonstrates the many rewards of an MBA degree to students who may not otherwise have considered this path. Participants spend a week on campus living the MBA student experience - attending classes, analyzing case studies, and debating management issues with peers and faculty.
This unique educational experience, in combination with a summer internship at a sponsoring company or organization, gives participants a broader understanding of the challenges business leaders face, the innumerable opportunities that exist in management, and the impact they can have on their community and the world through leadership.
Participants will be selected based on academic achievement, demonstrated leadership, and personal characteristics. Consistent with the objective of promoting educational diversity and opportunity in business leadership, additional criteria to be considered among others, are whether the applicant is:
the first family member to attend college;
a member of a group that is currently underrepresented in business schools and corporate America (e.g. African-American, Latino, Native American, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, or Transgender);
from a family with little business education or experience; and/or
from a school whose graduates do not typically attend a top-tier university ( e.g., attends a rural or predominantly minority college, or has attended a community college as part of a four-year degree).
