Harvard B-school Summer Venture in Management Program

The Harvard Business School (HBS) Summer Venture in Management Program (SVMP) is a one-week management training program for rising college seniors designed to increase diversity and opportunity in business education. Using the renowned case method of instruction, HBS faculty-led class discussions on current management issues. Participants spend evenings analyzing real business cases, and use morning study groups and classes to examine and debate their ideas through lively interaction with peers and faculty. The academic program is supplemented by presentations from HBS administrators and alumni who provide information about the impact that an MBA degree can have on their lives and careers.

Application deadline: May 17th. Participants will be selected based on academic achievement, demonstrated leadership and personal characteristics.

For additional information, questions, concerns and/or the SVMP application, visit the program website at http://www.hbs.edu/svmp/ or contact Steven Kennington II at steven.kennington@bba05.mccombs.utexas.edu
