Stockton University announced Tuesday it will host an inaugural one-week summer academy for high school students who are interested in careers in business and entrepreneurship.
Stockton says the Summer Entrepreneurship and Business Academy for rising high school juniors will run from July 19 to July 25. Participants will live on the Galloway campus, work with Stockton professors and business leaders, and take field trips to businesses in the Atlantic City and Philadelphia areas including South Jersey Industries, Borgata, The Federal Reserve Bank and AtlantiCare.
Stockton says the academy will also include discussion of all aspects of business, from accounting to business analytics, computer information systems, finance, management marketing and hospitality.
The final project will be a business plan competition judged by faculty, advisory board members and community leaders.
