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 instructors 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 ideas as part of an interdisciplinary Business Case 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.
