Business Bound: Undergraduate Business Program Workshop

 Business Bound is an on-demand, interactive workshop led by Dr. Brittany Maschal (no boring PowerPoints, promise) to help high school students who are undergrad b-school hopefuls set the foundation for competitive, differentiated applications. This workshop is offered in a small group setting (5 students max) or 1:1, and covers: 

  • Academic Foundations: Math is your friend! You’ll learn how to choose the appropriate foundation and extension courses both in and out of school and understand the nuances of standardized testing in the undergrad b-school admissions process. 
  • Why B-School: You’ll benefit from developing a compelling reason to study business in college. After this workshop, your why could change drastically and for the better.  
  • Extracurriculars: Your activities are the key storytelling elements of your application. They back your why, and they highlight what you’ve got to bring to the table. 
  • Leadership & Impact: Leadership is everywhere, and everyone can make an impact. We’ll show you how. No title of Captain or President needed.

Individualized Advising: You’ll have a forum to ask questions about anything else related to the b-school application process, from where you can internal transfer (especially if we determine the b-school is not your best path in) to how to approach the Ross Portfolio. Bring your questions!

Purpose Projects

Colleges love to see students engaged in meaningful, self-directed work.

We help students in grades 9-11 create a Purpose Project – a project they design and implement (with our help!) that taps into their interests and talents (the things they love, that bring them joy, that they want to study in college, or that they think could best help their school, community, or the world). A Purpose Project is connected to a deeper purpose and has tangible outcomes that the student identifies.

Past student projects have included writing a children’s book, completing a literature review or book challenge, creating a documentary trailer (and starting a nonprofit, school club, or app), spearheading an innovative volunteer event, raising money for an organization in a creative way (selling artwork, Etsy shop, etc.), and organizing an annual beach cleanup. The possibilities are endless!
