PLEASE NOTE: Unfortunately, our 2017 Summer Pre-College Business course has reached capacity. We highly recommend looking into our Entrepreneurship course, also offered through the Marist School of Management. If you are interested in that or other New York offerings, space is limited so we recommend applying as soon as possible.
