Business at Moore

Business at Moore Summer Program

The 2014 Business at Moore Summer Program will be held June 21-27, 2014.  In its eighth year, this will be the first year that the program will be held in the the new Darla Moore School of Business, located on the corner of Assembly and Greene Streets.  The 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.   

If you are a high school junior during the 2013-2014 academic year and are interested in participating in the 2014 Business at Moore program, click here for an application and a recommendation form.  In addition to these documents, your application packet should include your current academic transcript and an essay as described in section G of the application. Applicants must also have taken the PSAT, SAT or ACT standardized test.  The deadline for applications for the 2014 Business at Moore summer program is March 7, 2014.

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.  To date, the Business at Moore program has awarded 33 scholarships to participants in the program.
