2023 Summer Institute

students giving presentation for summer institute This four day/three night camp will introduce students to all aspects of business, while immersing them in campus life and what it looks like to be a K-State College of Business student. This intensive program encourages students to challenge their creative ideas and leadership skills through learning about the marketing, management, accounting, and finance functions within a business entity. Students will also engage in team collaboration, discussions with K-State faculty members and peers, and trips to local businesses. On the last day of the camp, students will apply all of their learning and practice pitching their entrepreneurial ideas as part of an interdisciplinary Business Challenge.

Upon completion of the program, students will receive a certificate of completion, plus valuable resources and connections at the K-State College of Business, as well as other departments and programs across campus and within the community of Manhattan. After participating in the summer camp, participates will gain access to specialized events and future opportunities in the College of Business.
