Casual summertime apparel is all that is necessary. For some of the special events we suggest students bring a couple of nice outfits. We will send you a suggested clothing/packing list in the spring.
We encourage all students to bring some spending money for snacks, souvenirs, and so on.
Students will be assigned a college dorm room with another student. Students will reside in Corbett Hall. Within the dorm, certain floors will be designated for females and the other floors for males. The dorm rooms consist of two twin size beds, two desks, two closets, and a landline phone. All dorms have a community kitchen, laundry facility, computer labs and wireless Internet access. Roommates will be assigned prior to the student’s arrival for the program.
We carefully select all of our counselors for the program. All of our counselors are undergraduate or graduate students that have experience working with teenagers. We strive to create an environment that is fun and exciting, with a variety of activities, to keep the students busy during most of their free time. The counselors and all program staff is on duty 24 hours a day to supervise students in and around our residence halls as well as all of the excursions and activities.
There are two types of scholarships, corporate scholarships and Global Business Academy scholarships.
Global Business Academy Scholarships: For students who meet the admission qualifications and need financial aid we have a limited number of Global Business Academy scholarships available. Scholarships are awarded based on several attributes including financial need, scholastic merit, leadership achievement, excellence in a field, communication skills, ability to be a team player and other factors including your essay and reason to attend the Global Business Academy.
To be considered, students must download the scholarship form and submit it in addition to the personal essay, transcript, and letter of recommendation required in the application.
If English is not your first language, please download and complete the demonstration of English proficiency form and submit it along with your other application materials.
Corporate Scholarships: Some Global Business Academy corporate sponsors provide scholarships to specific high schools or to students whose family members work for the company. If you are applying for one of these scholarships the company will provide you with a specific corporate promo code that you’ll need to input when you apply.
Children of CSU alumni, faculty and staff are eligible for Global Business Academy scholarships.
This is a non-credit program, and students will not receive grades on their work. Upon completion, students will receive a certificate of completion.
All classes and activities will be conducted in English. We are unable to provide ESL (English as a Second Language) support. If English is a student's second language, please complete the Demonstration of English Proficiency (Word) and upload it with your application.
For international and out-of-state students we recommend flying into Denver International Airport. A Global Business Academy staff member will greet students and shuttle them to Colorado State University. Upon conclusion of the program, Global Business Academy staff will shuttle students to Denver International Airport. We will provide more travel details once you’ve been admitted into the program.
Please book your travel to arrive by 1:30 pm Mountain Time (MT) on Wednesday, July 14, and to depart after 1 pm (MT) on Friday, July 23. We will have student presentations the morning of July 23 followed by a celebration.
Family members are invited to attend the Friday morning events. Please note that it takes a little over 1 hour for the shuttle to travel between the airport and CSU's campus in Fort Collins.
Colorado State University reserves the right to use any photography/video taken during the program for its promotional purposes. CSU promotions include, but are not limited to, marketing material, presentations, websites, brochures, etc.
