Berkeley Academic Business Camps for Youth

Eagle Pathways working with Berkeley Business Academy for Youth to Provide Academic Camps to Chinese Students.
Eagle Pathways is working with the Haas Business School at the University of California, Berkeley to bring Chinese students to America to attend business camps during the summer break of the 2017 academic year.
What are these programs?
The Berkeley Business Academy for Youth (B-)BAY introduces youth from around the world to the disciplines and skills that make business work. B-BAY students learn from professors who are at the top of their field and from youth mentors. Class projects and presentations give students hands-on experience in a safe learning environment-all on the vibrant University of California Berkeley campus.
In these programs, students will be held to the highest of academic standards and be fully immersed in the cultural, academic, and social atmosphere of UC Berkeley. Students will grapple with real-world issues that have a global impact beyond local and national borders. They will be thrust into the teamwork environment, providing them the opportunity to make lifelong friendships and start their personal network in the United States.
Who teaches these courses?
These courses are taught by Haas faculty, PhD candidates, and undergraduate students. Guest speakers from industry bring real-world perspective to the discussion. Class projects develop students’ teamwork, leadership, and communication skills.
