Program Description

Discover U in Business is designed to expose top multicultural high school students to the Farmer School of Business and to top global businesses in the country. The Discover U in Business camp targets students from historically underrepresented populations or who have a commitment to promoting a deeper understanding of and appreciation for diversity. Students representing different ethnic/racial backgrounds are encouraged to apply. Selected students will participate in workshops focusing on leadership, social media, branding, teams, and professional development workshops. Students will take tours of Cincinnati’s top businesses and network with recruiters who have strong relationships with the Farmer School of Business. Students will have the opportunity to network with Miami graduates who serve as powerful leaders and innovators in their field!

Discover U in Business is a three-day summer program. Students will spend two nights in a residence hall on campus and dine in one of our many dining facilities. Selected students will not have to pay to attend but will need to make arrangements to get to campus. Applicants must be high school SOPHOMORES, JUNIORS, or SENIORS in fall 2019, haveĀ at least a 3.0 gpa or higher, and reside in the Cincinnati, Dayton, Columbus or Cleveland area. Students in other geographic areas may also apply.

Discover U in Business provides an excellent opportunity to network Miami faculty, administrators, alumni and recruiters. Participants will also learn more about college life, working in teams, and developing your interpersonal skills while learning more about the world of business.
