Summer Intensive

The Summer Intensive program is designed to empower international students entering the Carey Business School to think critically and creatively, communicate clearly, and work both independently and collaboratively. The program prepares students for academic life at Carey and with social support for life outside of the Carey.

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 individual and team activities. Students will learn about the Carey academic environment and opportunities both in and out of the classroom. Visit our FAQ page for more details.
