For those students with an eye to running their own company, they’ll want to check out Long Island University’s Virtual Summer Entrepreneurship Academy. In order to attend, they will need to have a principal, counselor, or teacher to nominate them.
Here’s the link to nominate students.
Students engage in active learning experiences that provide insight into career paths in business and receive leadership coaching from former executives who’ve held positions such as Managing Director (in Finance) at Merrill Lynch, Director (of Marketing) at Bloomberg, and Partner (in Accounting) at EY. Students cap off their career exploration experience with a virtual visit to a Fortune 500 company.
There is a $50 course fee to attend the Academy.
To be eligible, students should:
- Be professional, driven leaders in their school communities
- Be current juniors planning to major in Business
- Have a cumulative GPA above 90 (or 3.5), PSAT of 1200
Students are admitted on a rolling basis. Spots are limited, and educators should submit their nominations as early as possible.
