Brief Program Summary: Designed to create a more diverse student body, the Business
Opportunity Program (BOP) recruits, enrolls, educates and provides support for Krannert School
of Management undergraduate and graduate students. It begins with an eight-week summer
session to jumpstart studies within the School of Management. BOP provides a number of
support services, including academic advising, coaching, tutoring services, and financial support.
Peer-to-peer mentoring is the foundation of a student’s support group, which ultimately leads to
the goal of academic excellence for all BOP students.
Success Metrics: Since taking wing in 1968 with 11 undergraduate student participants, BOP
has provided opportunities for more than 1,400 undergraduate and graduate students. BOP has
a 95% graduation rate and 100% job placement rate.
