BBYO Michigan Business and Entrepreneurship AcademyThe 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 teens present original business plans to a panel of judges from the local business community and the winners are awarded funding 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!

Campus Living

Your home on campus is Mosher-Jordan Residence Hall. You will be a part of a dynamic community of students and staff living together in one residence hall. Whether you’re watching a movie or working on a group project, it’s great to live with your friends. And if you have any questions, your Resident Counselor (RC) lives down the hall and is there for you 24/7.

The Dorm Set-up

  • Live in double rooms with hallway bathrooms.
  • Every air-conditioned room includes a bed, study desk, bookshelves, closet, and wi-fi.
  • Lounges, laundry facilities, and the Summer Discovery office are all in our residence hall.
  • Located on the popular “hill” section of central campus adjoined with the Hill Dining Center, and close to Central Campus Recreation Building and Palmer Field.
  • Less than a 10 minute walk to State Street in the heart of Ann Arbor.

All You Can Eat Dining on Campus

Eat in the new Hill Dining Center. Enjoy 3 meals every weekday, 1 on Saturday, and 2 on Sunday, when on campus. Choose from daily options including hearth oven pizza, grilled sandwiches, rotisserie, wok station, and salad bar. Vegetarian? Food Allergy? Special diets are not a problem.

Health & Safety

As always, your health and safety are our primary concern. Our RCs are committed to your support and supervision and are always on duty to help!
