Alaska Business Week is a summer opportunity for high school students who want "hands on" training in business. Students can earn 2 college credits (plus high school credit) by working with a team to organize and run a complex business model throughout the week. The dates are June 1-8th at UAF in Fairbanks. Cost can be covered through allotment. You can read all of the details here, and apply online here. One of our UL graduates, Luke Ringger, attended two years ago and highly recommends the program! That's Luke on the far right.
