Kogod Summer Institute

July 24 - 30, 2016


Are you a rising junior or senior in high school? Do you want to be a part of the fast-paced worlds of entertainment or sports?

Join us for the Kogod Summer Institute (KSI) at American University's Kogod School of Business on July 24-30, 2016. This program provides rising high school seniors with a one-week experience focused on specialized topics in business & sports and business & entertainment with an entrepreneurial spirit weaved into both tracks.

In addition to lectures from business professors and guest speakers, students will have the opportunity to network with professionals at site visits in the Washington, D.C. region. Students will also work in small teams to develop a business plan to be presented to friends and family at the closing ceremony.

The KSI is another step to a successful professional career. The Kogod Center for Career Development will walk students through the appropriate behavior for all business situations, including networking. The Kogod Center for Business Communication will hone their presentation tactics and teamwork skills, setting them apart for the rest of their high school career and on their future college applications.

Each track will only accept 30 students. Apply early and secure your spot!
