Understanding college majors and what they offer can be a challenge for high school students. The Stevens Pre-College Business Intensive Program is a week-long session designed not only to expose high school students to the many exciting areas of study and majors available in business, such as marketing and finance, but also to help students learn what a degree from the Howe School of Technology Management can do for their future.
This program provides coursework and assignments based on a full range of core business topics. Six modules throughout the week cover accounting, finance, quantitative finance, marketing, information systems and international business. Students work on fun, yet challenging, team projects each day based on module topics. Their efforts culminate with a final presentation judged by a panel of professors and industry executives. Students also see business in action during excursions to industry hubs like the New York Stock Exchange and Federal Reserve.
Students also get a sense of the full college experience. They reside in our dormitories on the Hudson River alongside other students participating in a variety of pre-college programs and enjoy the social perks of Hoboken, NJ — one of the country’s top-ranked college towns that’s just 20 minutes from Manhattan. Students especially have fun during the nightly social activities such as a Hudson River cruise, Mets baseball game, movie night and campus scavenger hunt.
Who Should Apply
