Build your brand

Ever wonder what it is like to be a college student? Watch the experience of business students at WMU.

Are you interested in business or thinking about pursuing a business degree after high school? Do you know what it takes to be a successful business student?

Build your professionalism and work ethic in our three-day career readiness and personal branding summer camp for high school students who have completed grade 10 or above. The business career camp will be held Aug. 1-3.

How will you spend your days?

  • Learning about and applying the seven A-behaviors of work ethic to your personal brand: attitude, attendance, appearance, ambition, accountability, acceptance and appreciation.
  • Getting an up-close look at the Haworth College of Business and Western Michigan University.
  • Talking with WMU business students about their experiences.
  • Touring a business and connecting with business professionals to learn more about careers.

Activities and workshops will be interactive and fun, giving you a real glimpse into the business world, all while discovering and building you personal brand. 

The camp will be held at WMU's Haworth College of Business in Schneider Hall, which is designed to mimic the environment of a corporate headquarters.

Cost: $125

Only 15 spots available!

This camp is a collaborative effort between the Student Professional Readiness Series and the Zhang Career Center in the Haworth College of Business
