FORDHAM UNIVERSITY Manhattan and the Bronx, NY Gabelli School of Business High School Programs Join us this summer! Fordham University’s Gabelli School of Business offers three unique summer programs designed specifically for high school students. In just a few days, you can get a firsthand idea of what it’s like to study business in college. Our goal is to connect students to these programs who are excited about business. The NYC Business Insider Program (June 22-26, 2020) is a one week program designed to immerse rising high school juniors and seniors in the commercial center of New York City. You will be exposed to different areas of business daily and have the opportunity to learn about different career paths and experiences within each industry from business professionals. Participating students will benefit from morning class sessions with top faculty from Fordham’s Gabelli School of Business, lunch discussions with our undergrads, and afternoon site visits to prominent New York City businesses. Last year’s program included a tour of PVH (home of Calvin Klein), a trip to Madison Square Garden, and a visit to PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC). The Wall Street in the Classroom Program (July 6-10, 2020 or July 20-24, 2020) is geared towards students who envision the possibility of finance in their future, or who simply want to learn more about how to manage their own finances. Student participants will learn about financial markets, stocks and bonds, alternative investments, risk management, ethics and industry trends! You will interact with top business executives and visit a premier New York City financial firm for a behind the scene look at what it is like to work in the industry. The Exploring Entrepreneurship Program (July 13-17, 2020) invites students to explore entrepreneurship in New York City at the Foundry, Fordham’s Hub for Innovation and Entrepreneurship. During one focused week, you will work with talented, committed peers to develop a new business idea and pitch it to a panel of professors. You will also visit a start-up incubator to see firsthand what the start-up environment is like. You might even discover how you can help change the world.
