Take a look at BELA programs.

Education is about preparing students for college and beyond.

BELA Summer Business Academy $400

“BELA Summer Business Academy” is a summer enrichment program designed for rising 9th – 12th graders interested in the world of business and entrepreneurship. The program partners high school students with colleges/universities in their area and offers these students the opportunity to engage in project based learning in the areas of finance, accounting, marketing, real estate and entrepreneurship.

 

Every summer, the professors at each individual college create a unique curriculum associated with a real life business case study in their area. Students are placed in groups in order to work through the case study by applying what they learn in the aforementioned business disciplines. On the last day of each session, each group will present a pinnacle project that highlights the ideas and concepts they’ve developed related to the case study.
