Lehigh University LEAD Summer Business Opportunity:  In collaboration with the Lehigh University, The Summer Business Institute (SBI) program is LEAD’s longest running Summer Institute and is considered the “flagship” program. The SBI program exposes scholars to business principles and the skill sets needed for successful business careers. The program challenges them through applied learning experiences often facilitated by college professors, links scholars to corporate executives in business fields and peers with similar aspirations and abilities. During LEAD SBIs, scholars reside and attend classes on-campus at a select number of the nation’s top business schools for two or three weeks. SBIs provide diverse, high achieving, rising high school seniors the opportunity to explore finance, entrepreneurship, accounting, and marketing, among other business sectors.
