    Unique aspects of MGSI

    ·         Unlike most summer opportunities, MGSI combines a residential experience with out of state travel.  The program concludes with a trip to Washington, DC and New York City.

    ·         Each MGSI class is small.  Twenty-four students from across North Carolina are selected.  The group size provides a much more intimate, personal experience for each participant.

    ·         It is quite affordable considering the extensive travel, excursions and activities; tuition is $1,800 plus a meal plan fee (approximately $350)

    Need-based scholarships are available to qualified applicants.

    Which students are well suited for MGSI?

    ·         We are seeking students who have a sincere interest in business as a college major and demonstrate leadership potential.  Some candidates have an entrepreneurial spirit, or have unique or extensive part-time work experience.   Also consider your most competitive students among under-represented groups and populations.  Interested students should demonstrate academic achievement.

    ·         Students who embrace and appreciate new people, opportunities and experiences are ideal for MGSI.  They should also be well-prepared to be away from home and able to manage a demanding schedule.
