    Program Highlights:

    • Learn how to construct a business model and build a foundation in business that you can use to “startup” your future.
    • During a professional site visit, you will see firsthand what it takes to succeed and get an inside look at how a highly efficient company operates.
    • Engaging speeches from and interaction with members of Yale University’s esteemed faculty and staff
    • Important leadership and professional skills that you can use now and in college, including information analysis and team building
    • What it takes to succeed with business innovations and emerging economic opportunities


    • Overcoming the hurdles every entrepreneur must face as you take your idea from concept to launch
    • Making connections with fellow high-achieving, business-minded students from all over the country


    • The creation of the business idea had the biggest impact on me. It showed me that everyone is not easy to work with, but if you somehow work it out, the ending result is great. I have also met many possible colleagues of the future.
