Simon School Co-Hosts Rochester High-School Students to Learn About Business and Entrepreneurship

The Simon School of Business and the Center for Entrepreneurship at the University of Rochester were co-hosts to Rochester-area high school students that are participating in the Urban League’s Summer for Opportunities Program (SOOP).  Students complete the six week program to learn about becoming a small-business owner and then choose a business that will be sustainable in the downtown Rochester area; develop and then ultimately share their business plan.

The students visited with Undergraduate Admissions and then came to the Business School for an interactive afternoon that included ice-breaker activities, break-out sessions with Simon MBA students on the functional areas of business, and a panel discussion.  The afternoon provided a great opportunity for these students to interact with Simon MBA students who served as role-models as these students are setting goals for their educational and professional futures.
