University of California, Berkeley-Haas School of Business presents the Berkeley Business Academy for Youth, summer academies for both middle and high school youth from around the world. Students participate in two weeks of formal learning sessions and informal social activities. The sessions are delivered on the UC Berkeley campus by Haas faculty, staff and graduate students.
The curriculum is designed at grade appropriate levels for middle and high school students as an introduction to the world of business and entrepreneurship from one of the United States’ top ten business schools. The program fosters creativity, innovation, and collaboration through an engaging, project-based curriculum. Curriculum highlights include:
Students complete a deliverable project by the end of the academy, develop their public speaking and presentation skills, spend time on UC Berkeley’s beautiful campus and interact with college students, learning about college life.
An option to stay in the dorms with students from other states and countries is available for local students.
