This is a capstone-level, experiential, study-away program geared specifically for FSB students (although it can work for non-business students as well). The idea is to do an extensive, deep dive into an industry to experience how it works and apply all the concepts you have learned during your time at Miami.
The brewing industry is an ideal context for this because it is..
It’s also a LOT of fun. The trip is filled with once-in-a-lifetime experiences, and you will discover some of the best breweries and most interesting beers being made in America today.
You must meet all of the following criteria to be eligible for this program:
Not old enough? Don’t have enough credits yet? Don’t worry. We run this program every year. SIGN UP TO GET PROGRAM UPDATES now you’ll be on the early notification list for next year.
We will be traveling to multiple locations (Cincinnati, Dayton, Denver, CO and Asheville, NC areas) to do the following activities…
The program includes three 3 credit hour, 400-level business courses. You will choose any combination of two of these courses that meets your interests and needs (for a total of 6 credit hours).
MGT495/ESP490– Prof Conger teaches this course which is cross-listed as MGT495 which is the strategy capstone and ESP490 which is an entrepreneurship elective.
MKT415 – Prof Stenstrom teaches this course which is the “Marketing to Organizations” course.
MGT490 – Prof Salzarulo teaches this course which is the “Special Topics in Supply Chain” course.
Which requirements each of these classes fulfill for you WILL vary. You should consult your academic advisor to figure out what combination of courses is best for you.
Also, Ben Palmer (firstname.lastname@example.org), who is an advisor in the main FSB advising office is very familiar with the program and is available to help you (and/or help your advisor help you).
We will meet for pre-program sessions roughly one evening per week between Oct-Dec 2023. We will also have opportunities on some weekends to have some unique brewing experiences, so you’ll want to plan for these.
We will be traveling together, and working all day, every day throughout the 2024 J-Term (roughly 3 full weeks). Every day will be VERY full. You should not plan on taking other courses (not even online courses), working part-time jobs, taking breaks/side-trips, etc during this time period. This trip will take 100% of your time.
There are two basic costs of the program.
Tuition – this is the Winter term tuition rate for the 6 total credit hours you will get through this program. This cost varies based on cohort year and in/out of state status (in all cases, the FSB surcharge also applies).
You can consult OneStop to find out the details…
Program Fee – this fee covers all the additional costs of the program including…
The program budget will be determined prior to applications opening in the Spring 2023 semester. We estimate the program fee for 2023 will be approximately $2,000-$2,500. HOWEVER, THIS NUMBER HAS NOT BEEN FINALIZED YET. The official fee amount will be available when the application site opens.
You will need to put down a $500 deposit on this program fee upon acceptance to the program. The remaining balance is due in the Fall semester (see details in the “how do I apply?” section below). After that point, the program fee is non-refundable (but tuition is refundable) if you have to pull out of the program.
NOTE: Actual costs will vary based on program capacity, fuel costs, etc. It will never go OVER the program fee you agree to upon committing to the program, but any money we do not spend will be refunded to you.
Here are the relevant dates you need to know (All are approximate at this time. Watch this space for updates.)..
PLEASE NOTE: This program tends to be very popular and fills up quickly. Although the application window will be open for several months, we strongly suggest you apply and commit to the program sooner rather than later if you are interested.
