High School Summer Enrichment Programs

Monday, July 19, 2021 – Friday, July 23, 2021

Howard University’s School of Business Summer Enrichment Programs introduces students to college life, teamwork, and fundamentals in four growing areas of business: Accounting, Information Systems, Actuarial Science, and Entrepreneurship. Each identified area provides significant opportunities for students to explore careers and progressive opportunities for professional development. The program combines classroom learning from the School of Business faculty, company site visits, and group presentations to prepare students with the practical skills and critical thinking abilities needed to benefit them in their future academic and professional endeavors. Each student in the Summer Enrichment Program will gain access to leadership, team building, college, and cultural enrichment activities.

In addition, each will register for one of the four distinctive tracks: Accounting, Information Systems, Actuarial Science, and Entrepreneurship. In each track, students will gain valuable exposure to important business topics and methods of analysis from Howard University School of Business professors and professionals in the field. Students will be placed in groups throughout the program to create a business and/or product that solves a problem in their respective fields.
