Chicago Summer Business Institute

Cabrera Capital Markets is a proud sponsor of The Chicago Summer Business Institute, providing paid summer internships for Chicago high school students. The Chicago Summer Business Institute program introduces students to the financial services sector by combining on-the-job experience with classroom education. The Institute's goal is to give its participants an incentive to continue their education while preparing them for the business world.

The Chicago Summer Business Institute targets high achievers from Chicago's public, parochial and private high schools. Ideal candidates have above-average grades, extra-curricular activities and plans for college.

Students are given the opportunity to participate in the Chicago business community and not only earn money and save for college but also experience a summer internship that can help further their careers after high school. Working in a professional environment gives the students a sense of what working will be like after college: the challenges, the responsibilities, and the feeling of accomplishment from a job well done.
