Young Women's Business Institute 2013
The Calvin Center for Innovation in Business is offering a unique learning experience for exceptional young women who are interested in networking, entrepreneurship, and personal growth.
The Calvin Young Women's Business Institute, which will take place July 17-19, 2013, is a selective, resume-building program open to young women who are entering their junior or senior year of high school.
Held on the campus of Calvin College, selected students will be exposed to state-of-the-art business theories, disciplines, and practices during the 3-day institute. They will work alongside and network with business leaders and innovators, and they will have the opportunity to explore their strengths using Donald O. Clifton's StrengthsFinder.
The institute is free to those who attend. Students need only to cover their personal expenses, including the cost of transportation to and from Calvin College. Applications are due by Friday, May 31.
