Saunders College of Business – Future Business Leaders & Entrepreneurs Program, Forty students from the Rochester City School District recently completed an unconventional summer school program. Saunders College of Business at Rochester Institute of Technology hosts the program designed to teach students how to be professionals with real businesses in the community.
Now under the helm of Saunders’ new Center for Urban Entrepreneurship, the Future Business Leaders and Entrepreneurs (FBLE) program was held from June 8 though Aug. 17 on the RIT campus.
FBLE is a 10-week Saturday session program where students and faculty from the Saunders College meet with minority junior and senior high school students from East High, Edison, Benjamin Franklin, School of the Arts, Wilson Commencement and others to help solve pressing business challenges of several Rochester-based minority companies.
The program consists of a sequence of business workshops and face-to-face working sessions and culminates in a formal presentation to representatives of the company during which students offer cost-effective, practical solutions the company can implement.,
