Alumni Testimonials

“Prior to SBI, I had almost no knowledge of the business world. Now that I have finished the program, I feel so much more confident in my business knowledge. SBI takes you step-by-step through every aspect of the business world, from finance and accounting to marketing and management. By the end of the program, I had vastly improved my skills in leading a team, writing a resume, and presenting in a professional setting. I think that SBI is an incredibly valuable asset that everyone should experience.”
Robert Flynn, Civil Engineering ‘13, SBI ‘11

“SBI remains one of the more intelligent decisions I've made thus far in college. Every employer I've interviewed with so far seems incredibly impressed that I was able to get a business minor in just one summer.”
