Undergrads interested in a taste of the Harvard Business School experience should consider applying for the HBS Summer Venture in Management Program (SVMP). This week-long management training program offers outstanding college seniors a unique educational opprotunity to develop a broader understanding of the business world, its challenges and the impact business leaders can make in society at large.
SVMP participants must be employed in a summer internship and be nominated by and have sponsorship from their company or organization to attend. Sponsoring organizations can include public or private companies, government agencies or entities, and non-profit organizations. In addition, applicants must be United States citizens or permanent residents, and must be rising college seniors who have completed their junior year of college by June, 2008.
HBS covers all educational expenses, including room and board, while the sponsors cover students’ salary during the week and assume the costs of transportation to and from the program. Participants will need to arrange the logistics of getting to Boston and back to their internship location. The application deadline is May 9, 2008.
