Harvard Business School (HBS) Calls All Juniors

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 lead 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 17, 2010.  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

The “Share What You Know With Bevo” Survey

In the past few days you should have received an e-mail asking you to participate in a survey called the “Student Experience in the Research University” or SERU. The purpose of this study is to help broaden our understanding of the undergraduate experience at UT Austin and improve our campus.

If you have already completed the survey, the Unversity wants to thank you.  But if you have not yet responded, please take a few minutes right now to locate the email sent to you with the subject line “Share What You Know With Bevo” or go to the following website, https://utdirect.utexas.edu/seru/ and log in with your UT EID.

Your response is very important to us, and UT wants you to know that your feedback is important.  Also, students who participate in the SERU will be entered into a drawing for VIP tickets to Longhorns basketball, baseball and softball games, and other prizes.  Should you have any further questions, please write to seru@utexas.edu and someone will assist you.

Pre-Graduate School Internship

Thinking about Graduate School? Then you should enroll in a Pre-Graduate School Internship!

What is the internship?
It’s an opportunity for bright UT students in ALL colleges and schools to work closely with a
graduate student mentor. Discover the unique aspects of graduate study that make it distinct
from the undergraduate experience and decide if graduate school is for you!

What would I have to do?
You’ll attend monthly workshops and meetings with other interns to discuss your experiences,
plus you’ll get the opportunity to interact with faculty and graduate student panels. In
addition, you and your graduate student mentor determine your projects and assignments for
the semester collaboratively.

What Students Say about the Program:
“This IE Internship has opened my eyes to possibilities I never before had contemplated. It has allowed me to
think about my education and discipline from the bottom up, rather than the top down. How odd that it took
until my final year and a class outside my field to be given the opportunity to make these discoveries.”

“A doctorate was something I had never considered, but now I feel it is one career path I would want to pursue. The IE program broadened my career choices.”
