What Past Students Are Saying

"I thought coming into the program I would learn a few things, but it wouldn't all make sense to me. I think all of the professors did a really good job of presenting the content in a way that was understandable. I got a lot more out of it than I was expecting." – 2020 Summer Business Institute Graduate

"The program completely exceeded my expectations in terms of what I was able to learn. It was more interesting and a lot more helpful than I thought it would be." – 2020 Summer Business Institute Graduate
