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 Academic Village. 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 fill out the scholarship form inside the application. See Prepare to Apply section for prompts.
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.
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. This program is run in English. You will need to be able to listen, comprehend, and speak in the class discussions and team projects in English.
