Business Bridge Programs

Summer Business Scholars Program | Booth School of Business

In collaboration with the University of Chicago's Booth School of Business, the Center for Careers, Life, and Service will be awarding one scholarship to send a current Grinnell student to Booth's Summer Business Scholars Program (SBSP) this summer. This program is best suited for students who are interested in pursuing employment immediately after Grinnell, particularly in the areas of business and entrepreneurship. The SBSP is an intensive collaborative learning experience that bridges the gap between education and the business world.

HBX CORe | Harvard Business School

The Center for Careers, Life, and Service has formed a partnership with the Harvard Business School to promote the HBX Credential of Readiness (CORe) program. Designed by faculty members at Harvard Business School, the HBX CORe uses Harvard’s case-study teaching framework to introduce students to the fundamentals of business thinking. Through an asynchronous online platform, students complete three modules: business analytics, economics for managers, and financial accounting. The program requires a commitment of 10–12 hours per week over a period of 11 weeks to complete (approximately 100 hours total) during the month of June. At the conclusion, participants take a comprehensive assessment to earn their HBX Credential of Readiness. This opportunity is perfect for rising second- and third-year students interested in pursuing careers and leadership roles in all industries and across all economic sectors (private, non-profit, government). Graduating seniors and alumni are also welcome to apply!

Due to its online format, students may participate in HBX CORe simultaneously with another internship, job, or research experience as long as you can devote 10–12 hours over a 11-week period to this opportunity.
