Applications are now being accepted for the second annual Think Like an Entrepreneur Summer Academy for high school students presented by Rowan University’s Rohrer College of Business.

The free eight-day, non-residential academy, which runs Monday through Thursday from July 9-12 and from July 16-19, is presented by the Rowan Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship and sponsored by TD Bank Charitable Foundation. Rising high school juniors and seniors in the academy will work and study in Business Hall on Rowan’s Glassboro campus.

Applications are due by June 3. Click here to register. 

The academy, which will accept 50 students, is designed to give future business leaders a better understanding of the hard work, creative mindset, and initiative that power start-up businesses.

Working with Rowan professors Mike Dominik and Eric Liguori, the program focuses on the development of soft skills—including fostering an entrepreneurial mindset—and on the development of specific entrepreneurial knowledge and expertise. Students will work with Dominik and Liguori to learn the basics of transforming an idea into a feasible and viable business. They’ll work in teams to conceive, develop, prototype and sell their ideas.

Students will earn three college credits—the equivalent of one college course--upon successful completion of the academy.
