Howard University’s School of Business Summer Enrichment Programs introduce students to college life, team work, and fundamentals in four growing areas of business: Accounting, Information Systems, Actuarial Science, and Entrepreneurship. Each identified area provides significant opportunities to students to explore careers and progressive opportunities for professional development. The program combines classroom learning from School of Business faculty, company site visits, and group presentations to prepare students with the practical skills and critical thinking abilities needed to benefit them in their future academic and professional endeavors. Each student in the Summer Enrichment Program will gain access to leadership, teambuilding, college, and cultural enrichment activities.

In addition, each will register for one of the four distinctive tracks: Accounting, Information Systems, Actuarial Science, and Entrepreneurship.
