2015 Business at Moore Summer Program

The 2015 Business at Moore Summer Program was a great success!  It was a wonderful group of students who arrived on campus June 13. They were intelligent, hard-working, and appreciative of the information shared with them. A special "Thank you" goes out to all of the Moore School faculty who not only taught classes for these students, but also spent their lunch break with them, talking about their future education and career goals.  You all had an impact on their future decisions and we hope that one of these will be to attend the University of South Carolina, Darla Moore School of Business.

The Business at Moore program is designed for high-achieving, high school juniors who are under-represented in business and have expressed an interest to pursue a business degree.  Participants live on campus for one week, enabling them to explore the many 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 and faculty.

Thanks to our program sponsor, Wells Fargo, this program is available at no cost to the student. Through the program’s classes and activities, the student 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

In addition to attending business classes and working on a group project, the 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 School 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 alums who have established scholarships for BAM students.
