The undergraduate BOP program is for high school graduates who have excelled and want to pursue a business degree from Krannert as Freshmen in the fall. The program begins with an eight-week summer session of 11 credit hours that all count toward graduation. Beginning in June, students take introductory Management courses to prepare them for courses during the Freshman year. The relaxed summer atmosphere gives students the chance to acclimate to campus and college life early, thus, assisting the transition from high school to college. Students live in the residence halls, get acquainted with campus culture, and learn about the available resources on campus that can help them succeed in the School of Management.
Upon the completion of the summer session, BOP offers the following services to all student participants throughout the duration of their college careers, including: academic tutoring and social mentoring provided by upperclassmen; professional development presentations and workshops provided by BOP alumni and corporate representatives, as well as internship and full-time employment search support; a family environment and support system amongst current students and alumni; networking opportunities with an alumni base of over 1,000; an opportunity to attend a top 25 business school; and scholarship assistance.

"There are many reasons one may have to deter oneself from making the right decision, but for me, BOP was something I needed to do. BOP has given me a highly marketable beginning to my college career in which I was able to network with extremely valuable faculty and students. BOP is an opportunity no one should pass up."
