Registration is now open to high school students with the first installment taking place on Monday, Aug. 10. 

Have you ever thought about being part of a summer camp among other campers from around the world? If so, you’ll have that chance with “From Dreams to Entrepreneurship,” an online summer program offered by Wentworth’s Department of Management.

Open to high school students, the program will explore the idea of what it means to become an entrepreneur, examining how to formulate ideas and then market them, while also teaching finance and accounting.

Six sessions will take place between August 10 and 21.

“We decided to view the pandemic as an opportunity to reach to a broader audience,” said organizer Santiago Umaschi, assistant professor in the Management department.

Students hailing from the United Kingdom, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Argentina and Colombia have already signed up for the courses.

“Our virtual entrepreneurship camp for high schoolers will broaden the horizons of young kids, allowing them to experience how innovation is born and what college is like, with the added benefit of creating an opportunity for cross cultural interactions,” said Umaschi.

Registration is free and a certificate of completion will be offered at the end of the program. Contact Umaschi at umaschis@wit.edu.
