Business at Moore
Business at Moore Summer Program
The 2013 Wells Fargo Business at Moore summer program, sponsored by Wells Fargo and hosted by the University of South Carolina's Darla Moore School of Business, took place June 22-28, 2013, and was a wonderful success. In its seventh year, this program brings high-achieving, high school juniors who are under-represented in business to campus for one week, enabling them to discover the many opportunities available to them with a business degree. It also gives these students a chance to meet other high school students from throughout the state, as well as current Moore School students and faculty.
We would like to thank PricewaterhouseCoopers for sponsoring our opening banquet this year, as well as taking part in our program curriculum through a business leadership program they presented to our students and through an invitation to tour their Charlotte, NC, facility. Their contributions were very informative for the students and we appreciate their involvement. We would also like to thank the following local businesses who assisted us in making the 2013 Business at Moore program a success:
- Lizard's Thicket
- AMF Park Lanes Bowling
- Carolina Café & Catering
- California Dreamin'
- Jason's Deli
- Southern Gourmet
- Frenzy T-shirts
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, check back on this site for an application in January 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 30 scholarships to participants in the program.
