On Bauer Business Focus — A conversation on high school students can get ahead of the game this summer with Andrew Schneider, business reporter for KUHF 88.7 FM.
Many teens may see summer as the time for to get a job or to just relax, but for students looking to get ahead of the game during their summer, the C. T. Bauer College of Business at the University of Houston is broadening its offerings for high schoolers to get a glimpse at college life and possible career options.
Leslie Killian, the college’s assistant director for outreach, stopped by Bauer Business Focus recently to discuss how Bauer’s lineup of 2013 summer camps can help high school students make future educational and career decisions.
“The Bauer Summer Business Institute is a three-day summer enrichment program on June 25-27. It’s not just three days of classroom instruction and meeting business folks at the Bauer College; it’s filled with site visits,” Killian said. “We take the kids into the real world of business where they get to visit the Federal Reserve Bank, meet with one of our corporate sponsors, Shell, and they also get to meet lots of entrepreneurs associated with Wolff Center for Entrepreneurship.”
In addition to the Bauer Summer Business Institute, Bauer will hold three new “Explore” camps this summer, focusing on entrepreneurship, marketing, and energy and sustainability.
“Our Explore camps are four days, so students spend the night in dorms and have the chance to interact with others on that level,” Killian added. “The camps are offered in July, and they’re very focused on particular subject matter. In addition to those topics, they also get to have some leadership training along with that.”
