Great business ideas don’t happen by accident. Learn how companies actually reach customers (and how you can do it too).
Maximum class size of 8
13-15 year olds
14 days commencing:
Market products and services, run promotions, make a profit. Anyone can do that, right? Sure they can, but to do it well – satisfying customers, meeting market demands and generating a stable income, you need to learn the tools of the trade. We’ll start you off, teaching the basics of markets and economies and how to run a successful business from the ground up. Then we’ll look at the role of marketing and the government for bigger picture context.
Learning in a small group (no more than 8 students and often fewer) means that you get quality time with your teacher and ask as many questions as you like! Through interactive learning, our teachers will guide you through new concepts and assign you practice tasks to build your knowledge and skills. You will also have an opportunity for group work, independent research, and homework assignments to be discussed in class. Small classes mean everyone gets to have their say, and students learn from debating with one another, as well as from their tutor.
It’s all about balance. Study with us at Cambridge and we’ll help you embrace everything the city has to offer – from socialising with new friends with shared interests to field trips and excursions for practical lessons you just can’t learn from a textbook. We understand students. We make sure you’re stimulated with a social calendar that packs it all in, from traditional guided tours of the University museums to a tranquil afternoon punting on the River Cam.
And of course, you’ll experience the true Cambridge way of life from weekly formal dinners to competitive debating and croquet. Remember to save some energy for dancing the night away at a disco!
"I loved having people from different cultural backgrounds in my course-- they brought experiences to the conversation that I had never encountered before."
"We were taught about business: what is it? how can we set up our own businesses? How can we successfully one day become leading entrepreneurs? Our classes were very engaging and informative. We did lots of case studies which helped us understand better."
"I like my course, business and entrepreneurship, because I can learn many things there and the teacher can be more focused in teaching me since there are only six students."
Home to Cambridge University since 1209, this city is famous for its cyclists, its museums, and of course, the 107 Nobel Laureates. But have you heard of the Mathematical Bridge (c.1749)- the first bridge built using mathematical principles? Or did you know that the first official game of football with rules similar to those we use now was played in 1848 in the middle of the city? Cambridge has so much to offer, from a vibrant history to cobbled streets and cozy cafes. It’s the perfect place to study, and spend a summer exploring.
You will be staying in single or twin room college accommodation, occupied by students during term time, located within a mile of the centre. Your accommodation will be ideally located to explore all the best areas of the city, from its oldest colleges to its lovely cafes.Ensuite rooms may be available at some locations.
You will get a chance to eat in a variety of restaurants in Cambridge, tasting food from all over the world. On top of that, you’ll be treated to a delicious formal dinner in your college - a three course meal where everyone gets a chance to dress up!
