St Catharines College
The University of Cambridge invites talented business students to apply to its Business and Entrepreneurship Summer Program. This two-week course provides students with core academic training from business practitioners and entrepreneurs, as well as in-depth hands-on sessions. Also available to students in this program are mentoring sessions, workshops, coaching, seminars, evening talks, and site visits.
Students will experience fifty-one contact hours of study, learning concepts and ideas related to business and entrepreneurship. Topic areas of study include prototyping and MVP, service provision, marketing delivery, value propositions, route to market, revenue streams, and many other areas. In addition, during the afternoon segment of each day’s schedule, students will work on teamwork, mentoring, and pitch development, along with entrepreneurship clinics and presentations to panels.
The program is available for residents and non-residents, and provides a full day of activities. Residents will live and dine in one of four historic Cambridge Colleges. These colleges are both beautiful and historic, providing students with unique opportunities to live and learn where former Nobel Prize winners and other accomplished graduates have resided. However, students who wish to attend the program but live off campus may do so. This part of the program is offered at a discounted rate.
