Harvard Business School Summer

Guide to The Best Summer Business Programs

Dartmouth College Tuck School of Business

Length: Four weeks
Cost: $9, 800, including room and board
Target Audience: Rising college juniors and seniors who do not major in either business or economics

Details: One of the largest and longest established running programs of its kind, Tuck’s Business Bridge program took in 260 students during two different sessions last year. The students came from 16 different countries and 68 schools, and about 25% of them are rising juniors. The program brings students through the fundamentals in accounting, economics, finance, marketing and communications.

Half way through the program, there’s a career day that includes panels to provide insight into major industries from consulting, investment banking and marketing. Unlike most summer programs, Bridge has recruiters on campus to interview and meet students and a career services portion of the program provides workshops on writing resumes and cover letters, improving interviewing skills and networking.

The first summer session runs from June 11 to July 16, while the second starts July 11 and runs through Aug. 10.NYU's Stern School of Business is rated 12th among the best U.S. B-schools by Poets&Quants In this year’s first group, some 14% of the class were freshman, while the largest single group (62%) were sophomores. Young women are better represented here than in a traditional MBA program with 44% of the class female.

Harvard Business School

Length: One week
Cost: Free
Target Audience: Rising college seniors from under-represented groups

Details: The 30-year-old Summer Venture program at Harvard is largely open to African-Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, LGBT students, first family members to attend college and students from families with little business education or experience. Harvard typically takes a little more than 60 students at a time for a week on campus in mid-June.

This unique educational experience helps students develop a broader understanding of the challenges business leaders face, the many dimensions of the business world, and the impact they can have on their community and the world through business leadership.

There's no single market for MBAs

by -

An MBA from a top business school like Harvard or Wharton could probably land interviews with some of the biggest corporations in the country, Proctor and Gamble, Microsoft, etc., as well as white-shoe management consulting outfits like McKinsey. MBAs from run of the mill business schools, not so much. I suggest requesting admission brochures from a bunch of these schools, and pay particular attention to any mention of placement of graduates. A lot of that info is probably on the schools' web sites as well.
If you get into a 2-year MBA program, the summer intern job you land after the first year will be critical, because that would be the main thing on your resume besides education
