    The Business and Leadership Institute (BLI) provides a collaborative environment where participants engage with business and leadership fundamentals through various activities, including self-assessment, case study analysis, video analysis, expert guest speakers, and collaborative small group work. 

    The experiential course is designed to provide students with the opportunity to experience college life at Boston College while expanding their understanding of the business and leadership elements crucial for success in both academic pursuits and early professional endeavors.  

    Designed to nurture students' leadership and business acumen, this program offers a broad curriculum spanning various subjects, including personal leadership, marketing, finance, international leadership, team dynamics, and emotional intelligence. At the heart of the program is the application of these concepts through the creation of a group business plan for a product or service. Using design thinking principles, students will leverage each day’s learning as they storyboard their “big idea,” culminating in their presentation of their start-up concept to a panel on the final day of the program.  This immersive approach ensures that participants grasp theoretical concepts and develop hands-on expertise.
