Global Business Challenge: A Team Approach to Business Success

The Summer Academy for Global Business

All businesses—small, large, corporate, family—are created, operate, and grow following core principles. Complex and diverse, today’s global business environment demands leaders with the forethought to anticipate and pivot toward changing opportunity. Leaders are required to analyze and imagine, to find solutions that create value for a company and its community.

This academy will provide students with the opportunity to explore the various disciplines, careers and majors within business through a hands-on business simulation. Students will form teams and the week will culminate in a mini-competition and presentation; Invaluable experiences in teamwork and problem solving. Ultimately students will have a better understanding of the complexity of global business operations in a dynamic competitive environment and management-related disciplines and the financial implications of the strategic and operational decisions.
