Business at Moore

The Business at Moore program is designed for high-achieving, rising high school seniors who are under-represented in business and have expressed an interest in pursuing a business degree. Participants live on campus for a 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.

2017 Business at Moore Summer Program

The Business at Moore summer program is excited to announce that we will hold two sessions this summer. The first session will be held June 17-23, 2017, and the second session will be held July 8-14, 2017.

Thanks to our program sponsor, Wells Fargo, this program is available at no cost to students. Through the program's classes and activities, the students 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.
  • Explore the opportunities a degree in business can provide.

In addition to attending business classes and working on a group project, 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 summer program and later enroll in the University of South Carolina as business majors are eligible to apply for renewable, four-year scholarships available through the Darla Moore School of Business and various Moore School alumni who have established scholarships for BAM students.

Students interested in applying to the program should be of a demographic under-represented in business, have a strong academic background and be considering business as a field of study and future career. Applications should hold a GPA of no less than 3.0 and a PSAT/SAT score (math and verbal only) of no less than 1050. PLAN/ACT scores are also accepted, with a composite score of no less than 19.
