The Knowledge@Wharton High School Global Young Leaders Academy Summer Program 2016 has only limited seats left.
Knowledge@Wharton High School (KWHS) is a part of the global Knowledge@Wharton network of online business journals at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
Launched last year, the KWHS Global Young Leaders Academy aims at promoting entrepreneurship, leadership, business and finance skills among high school students around the world through classroom content, trips and competitions. High School students aged 15-18 years are eligible to apply through BrainGain Magazine, a study abroad online magazine that is collaborating with KWHS on this program.
So far, KWHS has confirmed participants from India, Turkey, Hong Kong, Pakistan, Singapore, Ethiopia, China, Thailand, Bulgaria, Italy, Indonesia and Azerbaijan. The deadline for the applications has been extended to April 15, 2016.
Mukul Pandya, Executive Director and Editor-in-Chief, Knowledge@Wharton Network, says, "KWHS Global Young Leaders Academy provides high school students an opportunity to learn and discover their potential, so they can become successful and ethical business leaders in the future. As the summer program is of huge interest to students from all over the world, we have decided to extend the deadline for acceptance of applications. However, seats are filling up rapidly since the program has proved to be of great interest to high school students worldwide."
The program features lectures from Wharton faculty, experienced educators and business executives. It will also include corporate visits, team-building exercises and guided tours to historic places around Philadelphia, New York City and Washington DC. The students will get a taste of American culture, be a part of a community-service project and receive a certificate to recognize their volunteer hours. In addition, students who have successfully completed the program will receive a certificate from KWHS.
Harjiv Singh, Founder and Publisher of BrainGain Magazine, adds, "We are extremely glad we have collaborated with KWHS to help empower students all over the world. It makes us very happy to see students applying from such a diverse set of countries."
The two-week program costs US $5,000 per student including tuition, on-campus lodging and boarding, but excluding international travel, visa application fees and insurance. Applications for the KWHS Global Young Leaders Academy can be submitted online on http://wharton.braingainmag.com.
