The Summer Intensive program is uniquely designed to empower international students entering the Carey Business School to think critically and creatively, communicate clearly and work both independently and collaboratively.


Students will reflect on their learning and plan their personal, professional, and academic development. Throughout the program, students will build social and intercultural knowledge while engaging in many individual and team projects and activities. Students will learn about their new academic environment and city through their experiences both within and beyond the classroom.

Some of the activities that students enjoyed in 2018 included a trolley ride around the nation’s capital (Washington, D.C.) and a Baltimore crab feast (Baltimore, MD).
