Collaborate, Solve, Grow, Impact.

Designed for liberal arts undergraduates and recent graduates, the Business Immersion program goes beyond your typical summer internship.

It starts with a complex problem from your client that you and your team will be challenged to solve throughout the six weeks. You’ll learn and consult directly with experienced business professionals who will help you fine tune your skills.

With direct access to the business world, you’ll gain hands-on experience that prepares you for the transition from academic to professional life.

Program Highlights

During one resume-building summer in Columbus, Ohio, you’ll get direct experience in product and service design, customer research, data analytics, marketing, content strategy, accounting, and so much more.

In addition to those hard skill disciplines, you will practice soft skills including collaboration, critical thinking and creativity. Some other highlights include:

  • Work and live in downtown Columbus
  • Build relationships with attendees from across the nation and the world
  • Meet, consult, and network with business leaders
  • Learn about the needs of clients

  • Receive ongoing coaching, mentoring, and feedback
  • Solve real client challenges
