Business at Moore

2017 Business at Moore Summer Program

The Business at Moore (BAM) summer program is excited to announce that we will hold TWO session this summer!  The first session will be held June 17-23, 2017 and the second session will be held July 8-14, 2017.

The Business at Moore program is designed for high-achieving, high school juniors who are under-represented in business and have expressed an interest in pursing a business degree. Participants live on campus for one week, enabling them to explore the opportunities available to them with a business degree and to experience college life. It also gives participants a chance to meet other high school students from throughout the state, as well as current Moore School students, faculty, and staff.

Thanks to our program sponsor, Wells Fargo, this program is available at no cost to the students.  Through the program's classes and activities, students will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn the essentials of how a business operates
  • Learn how executives make business decisions
  • Find out what types of jobs are available in business
  • Talk with and learn from USC students, faculty, and local business executives
  • Explore the opportunities a degree in business can provide

In addition to attending business classes and working on a group project, students experience campus life by living in the dorms, sharing meals on- and off-campus and exploring some of the local entertainment venues.

Students who attend the Wells Fargo Business at Moore summer program and enroll in the University of South Carolina as a business major are eligible to apply for renewable four-year scholarships available through the Darla Moore School of Business and various Moore School alumni who have established scholarships for BAM students.

Students interested in applying to the program should be of a demographic under-represented in business, have a strong academic background, and should be considering business as a field of study and future career. Applicants hold a GPA of no less than 3.0 and a PSAT/SAT score (math and verbal only) of no less than 1050.  PLAN/ACT scores are also accepted, with a composite score of no less than 19.
