Program Description

LeBow Launch is a two-day introductory leadership program designed to provide incoming LeBow College of Business first-year students with a head start on college by allowing them to explore key business concepts and sharpen leadership skills that will prepare them to tackle the coursework ahead.

Skills essential to success in business include strong leadership and analytical skills combined with the ability to communicate effectively. Students will participate in case studies and team-building activities, all while building community and exploring their new home away from home.

Working in teams, students will engage in a business simulation and experience the power and necessity of teamwork. All learning activities will culminate in an oral team presentation at the conclusion of the two-day program.

There is a $250 charge to cover meals, program materials and experiences. Students who have room assignments for the fall term will move into the residence halls Thursday, September 9, between 8–11 a.m. There is no additional charge for early move-in.
