The NCCU School of Business Summer Youth Business and Entrepreneurship Academy is a non-residential 10-day program and will be held on the campus of NCCU from Monday, June 16, 2014 through Friday, June 27. The Academy is open to 20, high-achieving rising 10th and 11th grade students, with a B average or higher, from Durham, N.C., and surrounding counties. Selected students will receive business training and exposure to higher education on the campus of NCCU, along with a full scholarship to cover the cost of attendance plus materials. 

The two-week Academy includes:

  • Lectures taught by host NCCU professors and local business leaders. Topics include introductory business courses in marketing, finance (financial literacy), entrepreneurship, leadership and ethics.
  • Corporate visits to help students gain exposure to the application of business principles in the real world as they interact with local corporate executives during on-site visits.
  • Business plan development and team competition with participants to derive a business plan for a new idea. A panel of judges from the business community will evaluate the plan and a prize will be awarded to the winning team.
