Summer Business Institute 2019 attendees with Pagliacci

Why Students Should Attend

Have fun while preparing yourself for college! Live in the dorms for six days and five nights for a real on-campus experience.

Summer Business Institute (SBI) provides 1 college credit after the completion of the program. SBI provides the opportunity to explore subjects such as entrepreneurship, marketing, economics, management, and more all taught by Albers School of Business and Economics professors.

Throughout the week, scholars develop a social entrepreneurship business plan, as a team of six, with an undergraduate counselor from Seattle University. Additionally, you’ll have the opportunity to go on corporate headquarter visits and fun activities such as ice cream socials! 

Why Summer Programs Benefit Your Child

Seattle University believes in supporting our SBI alumni. After the program we support and encourage students to attend some form of  post-secondary education, whether that’d be Seattle University or not.

During the program, students earn one college credit. Also, they have the opportunity to explore careers in business. We hold financial workshops and mentorship through college application process, FAFSA, scholarship application process, resume writing, and much more.

At the core of our programs are meaningful engagements, as a resource for your child now and beyond the program.

Why Your School Should Have Students Participate

Students who attend Summer Business Institute further their career development while enhancing their understanding of post-secondary education.

This week-long program provides students with the opportunity to experience college life; they will partake in campus dining, stay in the dorms, and take college classes.

Our program is designed to balance academic rigor, personal growth, and fun. Upon successful completion students will earn 1 college credit.

Students also have the opportunity to earn high school credit depending on their schools' discretion. Additionally, after the program, we will provide students with support around financial literacy, college applications, and more.
