Camp Business, sponsored by Drexel University’s LeBow College of Business, is an enriching summer program designed to give rising high school juniors and seniors an intensive introduction to both collegiate and corporate business education — and it shows them that business can be both fun and exciting.
An Innovative Agenda
Camp Business participants learn the basics of major business disciplines including accounting, marketing, finance and management, as well as the core concepts of business including leadership, professional image, etiquette, team building, and strategy. Students also learn about resources essential to business such as the stock market, financial documents, and technology.
Students participating in the Commuter Session will experience an academic-intensive program facilitated by LeBow faculty and staff as well as current undergraduate business students. Campers will encounter boardroom-style classrooms, a company site visit, and a mini Shark Tank-style pitch competition.
Students participating in one of the Residential sessions will gain a stronger perspective of what it will be like as an undergraduate student staying business. Mentored by faculty and staff, as well as current undergraduate business students, campers will be immersed in various environments ranging from boardroom-style classrooms, company site visit, outdoor ropes courses, living in a residence hall and creating a thorough business presentation given to a designated Mock Board of Directors.
Certificates of completion for all students and prizes for the winning teams are issued at the end of the program.
