Do you dream of being your own boss some day? Do you have big ideas? Well, this is the camp for you. The Jr. Tiger Cage Be Your Own Boss Camp is designed to help students develop ideas to start their own business. Students will learn real world business skills: team building, leadership development, design thinking, financial management, verbal communication, and business etiquette through interactive lessons and exercises. Students will work on their ideas in the computer lab and take a field trip to a local business. The Jr. Tiger Cage camp provides a hands-on learning experience designed to guide program participants towards becoming excited about starting a business and solving problems. Tiger Cage students will also learn about the various college majors and business careers that support entrepreneurship (accounting, finance, marketing etc.) from Harbert College of Business Professors and visit with university admission officers.
