Students learn about entrepreneurship at Future Business Executives Career Exploration Camp|
The Center for Economic and Entrepreneurship Education (CEEE) at Misericordia University, under the direction of Robert Williams, M.S., executive director of the CEEE, hosted the four-day, three-night interactive camp for high school students who are interested in understanding the fundamentals of economics and entrepreneurship.
Students who participated in the academic camp found it to be informative and worthwhile. Participants said they learned valuable lessons they can apply to their everyday and academic lives, according to an exit survey students completed. The camp is open to students entering 11th and 12th grades. Participants attended lectures by local business leaders and executives who shared industry standards, innovations and expectations for new employees entering their industries. Students were also introduced to an ongoing economics curriculum they will be able to access throughout the academic year.
The Future Business Executives Career Exploration Camp is held annually in June for rising high school juniors and seniors.
