The BBYO Michigan Business and Entrepreneurship Academy highlights Jewish business leadership and engages teens to learn through classroom activities and field trips. On campus at the University of Michigan, participants will learn about competitive advantage, marketing, finance and product development.

The two week program, powered by the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship, concludes with a competition where students present their original business plans to a panel of judges from the local business community and the winners are awarded prizes for their business plan.

As a BBYO experience open to all Jewish teens, you'll benefit from campus living with a Jewish perspective. Celebrate Shabbat with new friends, learn about the entrepreneurship phenomenon in Israel and get acquainted with campus leadership opportunities at the local Hillel. Prior involvement with BBYO is not necessary!
