The Summer Venture in Management (SVMP) is a one-week residential educational program for college juniors and seniors designed to increase diversity and opportunity in business education.

During SVMP, students are immersed in the Harvard Business School experience. From living in our residence halls to participating in dynamic case study classes, SVMP students get to experience the HBS MBA with other outstanding peers.

HBS covers all expenses, including room and board. However, you will need to arrange for your own transportation to and from the program. If needed, limited financial aid is available to cover travel expenses to the program. Admitted students will be given information on how to request travel reimbursement.

SVMP is geared toward college seniors (Class of 2023) and juniors (Class of 2024) who:

  • Are the first family member to attend college, or from a family with little business education or experience;
  • Identify as a member of a group that is currently underrepresented in business schools and corporate America (e.g. African American, Latino, Native American, LGBTQ+);
  • Or attend a school whose graduates are sometimes underrepresented in business schools and corporate America (e.g. community college as part of a four-year degree or predominantly minority college).

Additional Information

  • Undocumented students are eligible to apply.
  • International students are not eligible for SVMP. Please consider Peek (an online program) if you are an international student.
